Al-Mustaqbal MP al-Daher Receives New Death Threats
[An Nahar] Al-Mustaqbal
... the Future Movement, political party led by Saad Hariri...
parliamentary bloc MP Khaled al-Daher said on Saturday that he received new death threats after several March 14-led opposition politicians received similar threats recently.
"I received new death threats via a telephone call to my bodyguard," al-Daher told LBCI.
He pointed out that his bodyguard telephoned him around 4:40 p.m. saying that he received a telephone call from an unknown person telling him to "convey a message to me."
"Tell your boss that he will be (shattered) like his friend was... You will get the same fate,"al-Daher said.
He noted that his bodyguard said that the accent of the caller is "Syrian."
"They are using a new method to intimidate us," al-Daher added, confirming that he informed Internal Security Forces chief Ashraf Rifi about the incident.
In October, March 14 alliance MPs Ammar Houri, Ahmed Fatfat, Hadi Hbeish, Khaled al-Daher and Nuhad al-Mashnouq said that they were texted death threats from a Syrian telephone number before and after Internal Security Forces Intelligence Bureau head Wissam al-Hasan's liquidation.
