Lebanese Forces Head, Samir Geagea, affirmed in a speech in the wake of the Strong Republic parliamentary bloc, that “the principle of parliamentary immunities and its essence is to help the deputy with what he needs to express and not to obstruct investigations. What is happening in the port explosion file is extremely suspicious.”
“The Parliament should have convened immediately. What is happening is rejected. The arguments and pretexts that are being given are in themselves a crime. The victims are being killed twice,” Geagea said, announcing that the Strong Republic bloc is more than ever determined to fight till the end.
He called upon the families of the victims, the wounded and the affected, and on the Lebanese as a whole to stand hand-in-hand against a controlling ruling authority. “Do you understand now why we refused to resign from the House of Representatives?” he asked, stressing that “whether or not immunity is lifted, the battle will continue.”
