BEIRUT: Justice Minister Shakib Qortbawi said Friday that the dispute over much-needed telecoms data that would help police track down the suspects in recent assassination attempts against March 14 officials has been resolved.

“An agreement was reached during a meeting in early June to provide all telecoms-related data,” Qortbawi told the Kataeb-run Voice of Lebanon radio station. He went on to say that the only exception would be IMSI (International Mobile Subscriber Identity), access to which would be restricted to requests for specific information.

He said the June meeting brought together judicial officials, police and army officers as well as officials with General Security and engineers from the Telecoms Ministry.

Qortbawi said data requested for the regions of Kesrouan, Byblos and Beirut had already been provided.

“All 768 data requests made during the month of June were approved,” Qortbawi said.
