It continues to reveal that Yaacoub's mother, Imtithal, was Saturday denied visitation rights by the prison's administration, despite having attained permission by Hammoud to meet him.The family also held the Internal Security Forces' Information Branch responsible for the developments, claiming that police members were harassing Yaacoub in prison. The family quoted Hasan as saying: "We knew there was an unstoppable series of injustices against us ... and with everything that has happened ... I will not surrender and will continue to fight against the oppressors, even if I am behind bars".Over the weekend, the family had appealed to police to allow the ex-MP to be hospitalized due to his worsening health condition. Yaacoub returned to Roumieh Prison earlier this month after being hospitalized over a similar health scare.
