Three engineers working for the Eden Bay Resort were released Friday after their arrest the day before in connection with flooding last month tied to the blockage of a sewer near the resort.On Friday afternoon, a Beirut judicial body dealing with appeals to decisions by investigative judges overrode the ruling and ordered their release.Ghobeiri Municipality blamed Chebib, who it said had allowed the sewer to remain blocked in service of private interests, apparently referencing the resort.
