It seems that the judicial investigation into the explosion of the Beirut port will remain suspended until the picture of political understandings becomes clear, and what the judiciary will decide regarding the lawsuits against the state submitted by President Hassan Diab and Representative Nohad al-Machnouk, while political and judicial salons are buzzing with readings and scenarios regarding the fate of the investigation as a whole, if the exit saying is established. By trying presidents and ministers, the Supreme Council for the Trial of Presidents and Ministers has the authority, and this means removing the defendants, President Diab, along with former ministers Ali Hassan Khalil, Ghazi Zuaiter and Youssef Fenianos, from the Judicial Investigation Department and the recovery of arrest warrants issued against some of them (Ali Hassan Khalil and Youssef Fenianos). There are also pessimistic questions and speculations about the fate of the judicial investigator, Judge Tariq Al-Bitar, and whether he will complete his investigations into the port explosion, or whether he will be a victim of these understandings, and finally stop the investigation file.
In a related context, sources accompanying the investigation file into the port explosion underestimated the importance and feasibility of satellite images if they were limited only to what was before and after the explosion.
The sources pointed out that the Russian side handed over to the Lebanese authorities pictures taken by Russian satellites, recording only the period before and after the explosion, and therefore they will not advance or delay the investigation, especially since such pictures are available to everyone, and they were shown on TV channels and on social media. social. Lebanon was not handed pictures of the moment of the explosion, which can answer many of the questions still surrounding the explosion and its causes.
