“I was the first to call for lifting immunities immediately,” Makhzoumi affirms

“One television station has been accustomed to broadcasting false and fabricated news, whereby in one of its reports yesterday dated 20/7/2021 about a petition over moving the trial of ministers and MPs accused in the Beirut Port blast, it claimed that MP Fouad Makhzoumi, who was not present at the session to lift immunities, will vote for referring the case to the Supreme Council for the Trial of Presidents and Ministers…while knowing that MP Makhzoumi was the first to call, and still calls, for the immediate lifting of immunities, and has refused, prior to all people and parliamentary blocs, to transfer the dossier from the Judicial Council to the Supreme Council, demanding that justice takes its course in fulfillment of the truth and in avengement of the martyrs’ blood…The false allegations are totally rejected. Stop your lying and misleading!” tweeted MP Fouad Makhzoumi on Wednesday.
