Tayouneh clashes’ investigations updates

After a more than two-month long break due to the response suit filed against him by the families of the six victims killed in the armed clashes, the Civil Court of Appeal in Beirut, led by Judge Nassib Elia, released the military investigative judge, Fadi Sawan, to resume his investigations into the Tayouneh events.

After the plaintiffs retracted their request to disqualify Sawan and appoint a judge in his place, the Court of Appeal issued a decision today to return the file to Sawan to continue the investigations from where they had left off. The content of this decision was communicated to the investigating judge.

The retraction of the families of the victims of the Tayouneh events from the request of the military investigative judge’s response was not for nothing. Rather, it came after the security services arrested persons affiliated with “Hezbollah” and the “Amal” movement suspected of involvement in the clashes, in order to allow Sawan to resume his procedures, and a decision was taken to release them at a later stage, and this step came to blow up any swap between the files of the port of Beirut and the events of Tayouneh.
