The former minister, lawyer Youssef Fenianos, announced, in a statement, after a team of his defense lawyers went today, Wednesday, to file a case to “transfer the case for legitimate suspicion,” “I thank God who made me the ability and ability to embrace the law and legal and judicial work for more than half my life.” And Ahmed the law, who taught me to return to the text and truth and to rise above personalization, bias, politicization and hunting in the glamor of the media in search of fake heroism.”
He said, “I spent more than half my life as a lawyer, and throughout my career that lasted more than 30 years, I did not quarrel with any judge, and I did not find myself in the position of complaining to the judiciary, but today I am forced and compelled to take this step.”
He continued, “I regret having to file a lawsuit for legitimate suspicion, in order to ensure the smooth conduct of the investigation and to reach the desired truth. Pending the outcome of this lawsuit, I will determine my position according to the law, relying on the integrity of the judiciary, explaining that whoever embraces law and justice, the principle of his age, will not remain silent about the injustice that affects him personally.
He stressed that “abnormal behavior, responses, jurisprudence, selectivity, double standards, and all kinds of grievances, do not change the facts and facts.” “History does not record wishes and intentions, but actions and deeds,” he said.
Fenianos said, “Attaining him with the crime and issuing an arrest warrant against him is an illegal and unjust step, as the Judicial Council does not originally have the authority.” “The calamity of the port explosion has come, and there are those who want to blame me as a person, from my position as a former minister of public works and transport, for the sins of the entire issue in all its dimensions,” he said. Where I assure that I bear my administrative responsibilities, if any. And there is no Sharia or right that accepts that I carry the crime of killing the martyrs, harming the wounded and destroying Beirut’s homes, and I feel great pain with the families of the victims as if I am one of them, especially since what they lost has no compensation in this world, but the truth alone that heals the wounds.”
He concluded: “I regret to say that the path taken by Judge Al-Bitar will not lead to the truth.”
