Mount Lebanon's Accusatory Body Thursday rejected a decision to release former MP Hasan Yaacoub on bail, who is accused of being involved in the kidnapping of Hannibal Gadhafi.A source told The Daily Star that the head of the body Judge Elias Eid cancelled a decision last week by Mount Lebanon's Investigative Magistrate Peter Germanos granting Yaacoub and two of his bodyguard's release. The Yaacoub family blames the late Gadhafi for the 1978 disappearance of their father, Sheikh Mohammad Yaacoub, who was accompanying Shiite Imam Musa Sadr during an official visit to Libya.
