Franjieh “inaugurates” his candidacy from Bkerke…and a “proxy clash” between Al-Rahi and Ibrahim!

Despite the crashing political, judicial and security waves, and the disruption of the government and possibly presidential elections, the head of the Marada movement, Suleiman Franjieh, “inaugurated” his presidential candidate yesterday at Bkerke.

On the other hand, the case of the arrest of Archbishop Musa al-Hajj at the General Security at the Naqoura border crossing continued to be in a judicial and security dispute between Churches, the Maronite Patriarch Beshara al-Rahi and the Director General of Public Security Major Abbas Ibrahim, notably with the leaking of the content of a heated and negative dialogue between al-Rai and Ibrahim, and the latter quickly denied him. !

Christian sources opposed to “Janoubia” believe that the clash between Bkerke and Ibrahim, and the latter’s cancellation of his visit, which was scheduled for yesterday to the building, the extent of the problem and the pastor’s anger over the public security’s arrest of archbishop reflected. Al-Hajj for more than 12 hours and his “armed” everything that even carries his identification papers.

According to the sources, the clash between Al-Ra’i and Ibrahim is by mutawatir and on behalf of Hezbollah!

The case has moved into the official and judicial sphere, amid political reactions that reject what he has been exposed to.

The media office of the Minister of Justice, Henry El-Khoury, said that “the minister is in the process of requesting all relevant judicial authorities to inform him immediately and in writing of the developments that have taken place over the past two days in relation to the investigation took place. with His Excellency Archbishop Moussa Al-Hajj and the raid of the Banque du Liban to take the necessary steps.”

Franjieh offers credentials to Syria, Iran and “Hezbollah,” as do the Americans and the French. Franjieh expects that there will be a domestic and international settlement in his name, so he will “believe with this bitter hey.”

The Minister of Justice visited President Najib Mikati in the presence of the President of the Supreme Court Council, Judge Suhail Abboud, and the State Prosecutor, Judge Ghassan Oweidat.

It was reported that Patriarch Mar Bechara Boutros Al-Rahi refused to receive Judge Akiki before recovering the personal belongings and assets of Archbishop Al-Hajj.

Meanwhile, the Christian parties rushed to Diman next Sunday (the Lebanese Forces – especially the Kataeb) to announce their support for Patriarch Al-Rahi.

Also read: The Church “stands up” in the face of Akiki… and the “presidency fever” hurts the composition and interpretation!

Major General Ibrahim canceled a visit to Bkerke that was scheduled for yesterday for reasons he declined to discuss but related to the deteriorating relationship between the Patriarch’s building and the Directorate and with him personally.

And the General Directorate of Public Security said in a statement: “What the directorate’s elements did at the Naqoura border post with Bishop Musa Al-Hajj is a legal procedure in the implementation of the judicial signal on the one hand , and the instructions for crossing to and from the occupied Palestinian territories, to which all who cross without exception, on the other side.

He denied what was leaked about a contact between the Director General, Major General Abbas Ibrahim, and Patriarch Bechara Al-Rahi, saying: What was mentioned in the alleged leaks is an imagination, and has malicious intentions that aimed at the excellent relationship that exists between the patriarchal building and the Director General of Public Security.

The head of the Progressive Socialist Party, Walid Jumblatt, commented on his Twitter account, saying: Whatever the circumstances behind the arrest of Archbishop Al-Hajj, it is useful to note that calm treatment is better than this noise, and that respect for institutions in this difficult circumstance is above all considerations. On the other hand, we reject the Israeli exploitation of the position of clergy in an attempt to smuggle money for political purposes.

Sheikh al-Aql of the Unitarian Druze sect, Sami Abi al-Muna, issued the following statement: “In confirmation of our previous explanation and to prevent any abuse, we believe that the acceptance of money coming from occupied Palestine over the Lebanese border, whatever its humanitarian justification, is classified as dealing with an enemy state, which we cannot approve, and even our rejection of it, our rejection of all forms of dealing with the enemy, and therefore urge us to refrain from receiving those funds of which we had no prior knowledge and immediately returned them from where they came.”

Franjieh: I am not a mediocre!

In another political context, the head of the Marada movement, Suleiman Franjieh, said after his meeting with Patriarch Al-Rahi in Diman: We always agree with Patriarch Al-Rahi and the relationship with him is excellent, and it will so happy, and I am with neutrality but also with realism.

In response to a question whether the president’s specifications fit him, he said: The patriarch did not tell me the contrary, and I am open, moderate and a man of dialogue, but I have my political position.

He continued: I am with the formation of a government as soon as possible, and there is no direct relationship with Gibran Bassil.

In answer to a question, he said: I was aware of the visit of the treasurer to Basil, but I was not the one who asked him to go and meet him.

Sources following Janoubia’s presidential file believe that Franjieh holds many meetings related to the presidential file, but Bkerke’s visit is the official announcement of the launch of his presidential campaign.

The sources stop at Franjieh’s statement that he is not a moderate and is not neutral and that he will not “betray” Syria and the “resistance” and that he is openly his friendship with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

She says that Franjieh offers credentials to Syria, Iran and “Hezbollah”, as do the Americans and the French. Perhaps Franjieh expects that there will be a regional and international settlement in his name, so that he will be “defeated by the bitter hey .”
