ADP’s Eid charged with threatening police
A+ A-

BEIRUT: Rifaat Eid, the Arab Democratic Party politburo chief, has been charged with threatening members of Lebanon’s police force, judicial sources told The Daily Star over the weekend. 

Military Prosecutor Judge Saqr Saqr charged the ADP official earlier this week, the sources said, adding that the charge included “threatening to kill members of the police.” 

Last month, Eid said at a news conference: “The Information Branch has made the [shedding of the] blood of the Alawites permissible, therefore the [shedding] of their blood for us is also permissible.” 

Last month, acting State Prosecutor Judge Samir Hammoud issued a summons for Rifaat Eid to be interrogated over the threats against the police, the sources said. 

Hammoud then filed earlier this month a search warrant after a Eid failed to show up for interrogation, they added.
