Moussawi: What happened at the airport will recur whenever we please

“What happened at the airport was [our] right as MPs, and it will happen again whenever we want,” Al-Akhbar newspaper quoted on Monday Loyalty to the Resistance bloc MP Nawwaf Moussawi as saying.

On September 18, Hezbollah MPs and armed bodyguards escorted former General Security chief Jamil as-Sayyed from Beirut’s Rafik Hariri International Airport after his arrival from Paris. Earlier that week, Sayyed had been summoned by the Lebanese judiciary for questioning over speeches in which he threatened Prime Minister Saad Hariri.

March 14 politicians have condemned the event as undermining state institutions.

In an interview on Sunday evening, President Michel Sleiman said that the reception was an “objectionable approach to an event but not a rehearsal for a coup,” adding that there is a need for a “return to the law and to work within state institutions.”
