Beirut's First Investigative Judge Ghassan Oueidat Monday dropped a case against Saudi Arabia's Arab Gulf Affairs Minister Thamer Sabhan because it conflicted with what he said was Lebanon's "supreme interest," a judicial source told The Daily Star.Sabhan wrote in his tweets that, "Lebanon, after the resignation, will never be as it was before," and, "we will not accept Lebanon being part of a war against Saudi Arabia". He also said the Lebanese people would have to choose between supporting or opposing Hezbollah.Oueidat's decision last week to accept the complaint, which alleged Sabhan stirred up strife among the Lebanese public and interfered in Lebanon's relations with a foreign country, was condemned locally and regionally.
