BEIRUT: Military Investigative Judge Riad Abu Ghayda issued a summons Monday for Rifaat Eid, Arab Democratic Party politburo chief, to interrogate him for threatening Lebanon's police force.

Abu Ghayda set a day for next year to interrogate Eid but declined to specify the exact date of the hearing for security reasons, judicial sources told The Daily Star.

Military Prosecutor Judge Saqr Saqr charged the ADP official earlier this month for threatening to kill members of the police.

During a news conference earlier last month, Eid voiced warnings against members of the Information Branch of the Internal Security Forces.

“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,” he said during a Nov. 9 news conference in the northern city of Tripoli.

He also accused the ISF Information Branch of coercing a suspect into naming his father, ADP Secretary General Ali Eid, in relation to involvement in the August car bombings that targeted two separate Tripoli mosques.
