Constitutional Council head Issam Sleiman Friday filed a defamation lawsuit against former MP Dima Jamali based on a video in which Jamali can be seen accusing the council of accepting bribes to annul her election. Sleiman's lawyer, Sleiman Sleiman, told local channel Al-Jadeed that he filed the lawsuit to Beirut First Investigative Judge Ghassan Oueidat on behalf of the entire council. The Constitutional Council removed Jamali, who is affiliated with Prime Minister Saad Hariri's Future Movement, from her parliamentary seat in Tripoli on Feb. 21, the result of an appeal by unsuccessful candidate Taha Naji. Naji had run on MP Faisal Karami's National Dignity list in the May 2018 parliamentary elections.
