President Michel Suleiman on Wednesday threw his weight behind the Lebanese army’s decision to bring to trial those who target the military and rejected arms spread randomly across the country. In his Army Day speech at the Shukri Ghanem barracks in Fayyadiyeh, a suburb of Beirut, Suleiman said: “The judiciary should issue verdicts against those who targeted the army without any fear.” He was referring to a decision by the military on Tuesday to prosecute al-Mustaqbal’s Akkar MP Moeen al-Merehbi for attacking the military establishment and slandering army chief Gen. Jean Qahwaji. [Link]
