Now Lebanon - Moussa: Abduction is a crime and culprits have to be punished, October 24, 2011

Chief of The Human Rights Parliamentary committee Michel Moussa told reporters following an assembly of his commission that abduction is “a crime committed against [one’s country] and its citizens and, therefore, we have asked security and judicial authorities to follow up on kidnapping cases,” the National News Agency ( NNA) reported.
The Human Rights Parliamentary committee gathered on Monday and condemned the abduction of citizens in Lebanon, and recommended the Lebanese judiciary take charge of a number of abduction cases.
Moussa said that the meeting “witnessed debates, just like any other meetings, and the discussions were heated at some points, but they soon cooled down.”
Regarding the abduction of the Syrian Al-Jassem brothers, who were kidnapped in Lebanon, Moussa said that Attorney General Judge Said Mirza “presented us with the documents stating that the family dropped the lawsuit.”
On October 11, Al-Jumhuriya newspaper reported that the Internal Security Forces ( ISF) Chief General Ashraf Rifi told the Human Rights parliamentary committee that “members of the Lebanese security forces assigned to protect the Syrian embassy in Lebanon kidnapped Syrians using embassy vehicles.”
In March, Syrian National Jassem Merii al-Jassem and his three brothers Chedid, Ahmad and Ali were abducted in Lebanon.
