Army Raids House of Drug Kingpin Nouh Zoaiter in Bekaa

W300

Lebanon's army intelligence staged a security day and carried out several raids in the Bekaa region in east Lebanon including residences of drug kingpin Nouh Zoaiter, VDL (100.5) said on Monday.

The army raided a number of houses that belong to Zoaiter in Hay al-Sharawneh but they did not find him, added VDL.

Zoaiter is one of the most prominent drug farmers and dealers and is wanted by the state on several arrest warrants.

Charges against him include drug smuggling, car theft, terrorism, arms trade, selling counterfeit money, and kidnapping.

He is also wanted by Interpol.

This is not the first time that Zoaiter manages to evade arrest as he has succeeded to do so for years.

1) He was as usual informed of the impending raids ahead of time

2) Why doesn't the government seize all his properties that they raided?

Wasn't this gut on BBC a while ago boasting how the government, politicians and police are on his payroll? If they wanted hom they would have captured him...this is just a show off play.

Nouh Zoaiter manages to evade arrest by getting away on his ark.

Good for him, at least he's not a hypocrite. Long live Hashish.
