President Michel Suleiman on Sunday stressed that the government “must not provide cover for perpetrators and criminals” and called for “speeding up the indictments” in the cases of ex-minister Michel Samaha and the Nahr al-Bared clashes, in a speech eulogizing slain Maj. Gen. Wissam a-Hasan, chief of the Internal Security Forces’ Intelligence Bureau. “I cannot but express my deep feelings of grief and pain over the martyrs, topped by Maj. Gen. Wissam al-Hasan and Chief Warrant Officer Ahmed Suhyooni, and I extend my warmest condolences to the families of the martyrs, their comrades, the minister of interior, the prime minister and everyone who loved the martyrs,” said Suleiman at the ISF headquarters in Ashrafiyeh.
