Now Lebanon - Moussa: Parliamentary Human Rights Committee session ‘took political turn’, October 25, 2011

Parliamentary Human Rights Committee chief MP Michel Moussa told LBC television on Tuesday that the committee’s Monday discussions were “legal,” but took a political turn on “certain points” that led to the argument between Hezbollah and Future bloc MPs.
LBC reported on Monday that Loyalty to the Resistance bloc MP Ali Ammar threatened Future bloc MP Ahmad Fatfat during the committee’s meeting.
Moussa also said the committee’s jurisdiction over kidnapping cases is “specific,” and that the judiciary is handling the investigations into the incidents.
Al-Jumhuriya newspaper reported October 11 that Internal Security Forces Director General Achraf Rifi told the Parliamentary Human Rights Committee that “Lebanese security forces assigned to protect the Syrian embassy in Lebanon kidnapped four [dissident] Syrians using embassy vehicles.”
Meanwhile, former Syrian official Shibli al-Ayssami disappeared May in Aley two months after the breakout of widespread anti-regime protests in Syria.
