Hezbully Mahmoud Hayek Charged with Attempt on MP Harb's Life
2013-02-02
[An Nahar] State commissioner to the military court Judge Saqr Saqr charged on Friday Mahmoud Hayek with attempted assassination of MP Butros Harb in July 2012.

Hayek refused to appear before the investigative bodies because he is a member of Hizbullah's security apparatus
Hayek is also charged with carrying out terrorist activity.

If convicted the man could be sentenced to death.

Harb had said that Hayek refused to appear before the investigative bodies because he is a member of Hizbullah's security apparatus.

The Batroun MP escaped earlier in July an assassination bid after residents of a building in which his office is located in the Beirut district of Badaro discovered individuals trying to booby-trap the elevator.

A string of high-level assassinations struck Lebanon between 2004 and 2008, targeting political, media and security figures who vocally opposed the Syrian government, including former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri who was killed in a powerful car bomb blast in February 2005.
