It has been revealed that William Noun wanted to turn himself in on Monday after being summoned. Despite people discouraging him from doing so, he insisted he will set a good example.

However, the circumstances around his arrest seem to suggest they wanted to make a lesson out of him and force him to be jailed over the weekend. As was confirmed by MP Yacoubian outside of the State Security facility.

Judge Zaher Hamadeh just gave the notice to detain William Noun, despite being in custody for over 12 hours already.

Earlier today, William Noun‘s family house was raided by authorities and he’s been detained ever since.

Roads and highways across Lebanon are closed in support. MPs have publicly called this out, with several making their way into the State Security facility to be with William Noun.

Protests have been escalating the last few days over frustrations of stalemate and attempted obstruction of the investigation.

William Noun‘s brother, Joe Noun, was killed in the explosion. He was a firefighter and one of the first to respond during the Beirut Port blast.
