Iċ-Ċentru Ewropew għas-Sigurtà u l-Intelliġenza affiljat mal-Unjoni Ewropea ħejja rapport dettaljat dwar il-mexxej tal-inizjattiva tat-Tielet Repubblika Lebaniża, Omar Harfouch, u dak li qed jiffaċċja dan tal-aħħar mit-tentattivi tas-sistema Libaniża biex timminah u ma tħallihx ikompli. il-proġett tiegħu biex jiġġieled il-korruzzjoni.

The report stated that on 29 March, Harfouch attended a conference in the European Parliament on the topic of “fighting terrorism,” where he spoke briefly for about three minutes about the issue of corruption in Lebanon. In the days that followed, he was violently attacked in Beirut by some media, Hezbollah, and the Lebanese authorities, who accused him of “contacting an enemy state” (Israel).

The daily newspaper Al-Akhbar, which is reputed to be close to Hezbollah, was particularly fierce against it. Then the military justice system opened proceedings against Omar Harfouch on charges of “treason”, and later an arrest warrant was issued for him, ordered directly by the Prime Minister of Lebanon. Since then, Omar Harfouch has been the target of a veritable campaign of hate and slander.

Ir-rapport irrimarka li wara li Harfouch irnexxielu jikxef diversi fajls ta’ korruzzjoni, fosthom dawk tal-Prim Ministru Najib Mikati, dan tal-aħħar kellu raġuni biex ikun irrabjat ma’ Harfouch, li għadda dokumenti lill-ġudikatura ta’ Monako li kkundannaw lil Mikati, li ġie mħares għal ħasil ta’ flus. . L-istess japplika għall-gvernatur tal-Bank Ċentrali tal-Libanu, li kien akkużat b’ħasil ta’ flus minn pajjiżi Ewropej.

Ukoll, għexieren ta’ miljuni ta’ dollari ġew iffriżati għal Banque Richelieu f’Monaco, li hija sussidjarja ta’ Société Générale Bank immexxi minn Anton Sehnaoui, li min-naħa tiegħu jrid vendikazzjoni fuq Harfouch. Minn dakinhar, l-investigazzjoni aċċellerat, u Franza, il-Ġermanja, u l-Lussemburgu kkonfiskaw 120 miljun ewro li jappartjenu lil Salameh.

And last March, the Lebanese banker Marawan Khaireddine was arrested, and finally, Sehnawi himself is suspected of being involved in corruption cases, and it is said that he is behind a smear campaign in France and Lebanon aimed at discrediting Harfouch. Therefore, he is “the man to be killed.”

The report considered that Harfouch’s mandate of arrest was simply the logical result of this political vendetta launched by his opponents. It should be noted that this accusation of “links with Israel” is a second attempt to use the same argument to silence Harfouch. As we will see below in discussing another case, these facts were largely prohibited (the statute of limitations is ten years, and this supposed “contact” took place 18 years before the complaint was filed, i.e., in other words, it is out of date).

That the case is admissible, and who decided to refer Harfouch to the military courts on charges of treason and disclosure of state secrets? The report indicated that Public Prosecutor Ghassan Oweidat decided to refer Harfouch’s file despite the passage of time, which was submitted by some of Mikati’s lawyers regarding Harfouch’s presence on a trip that included an Israeli journalist in 2004, to the military court.

Illum, dan il-fenomenu ġie ripetut b'imħallef ġdid, l-imħallef inkwirenti fit-tramuntana, Samaranda Nassar, affiljata mal-Moviment Patrijottiku Ħieles u alleat tal-Hezbollah, li ħarġet mandat ta' arrest għal Harfouch ibbażat fuq l-ilment ta' Mikati mingħajr ma sema' lil Harfouch jew anke jinfurmah skont prinċipji legali.
