Charbel, Islamists Agree on Mawlawi Re-interrogation, Roads Reopened as Sit-in Remains
[An Nahar] An agreement was reached on Wednesday between Interior Minister Marwan Charbel, Islamic committees and the committee following up on the case of Islamist detainees, under which Salafist activist Shadi al-Mawlawi will be re-interrogated on Thursday under the supervision of Judge Saqr Saqr and in the presence of Mawlawi's lawyers.
Following the agreement, Islamist protesters reopened roads leading to Tripoli's
...a confusing city, one end of thich is located in Lebanon and the other end of which is the capital of Libya. Its chief distinction is being mentioned in the Marine Hymn...
al-Nour Square but decided to maintain their sit-in until Thursday afternoon.
Charbel later arrived at the square and met with the protesters.
The agreement was reached at the office of North Governor Nassif Qaloush in the presence of Moslem holy mans Dai al-Islam al-Shahhal, Zakariya al-Masri, Salem al-Rafehi, Bilal Baroudi, Mohammed Sayyed, Ali Hajar, Nabil Rahim, Kamal al-Rafehi, and lawyers Sheikh Raed Sulti and Sheikh Ahmed Shaarani.
State-run National News Agency said Mawlawi's case faces three possibilities: "He might be freed if proven innocent, released on bail if he is involved in offences, or kept in jug over substantial charges that do not allow his release on bail."
Mawlawi's arrest on Saturday in the northern city of Tripoli by General Security agents had infuriated the city's Islamists and sparked three days of deadly festivities that left nine people dead and more than 90 maimed. Clashes renewed for several hours on Wednesday in the city, leaving one person dead and at least 10 maimed.
