Wahhab: Baqaata Bombing Won't Go without Judicial, Political Accountability
Arab Tawhid Party chief Wiam Wahhab stressed Sunday that the motives behind the bombing that targeted his party’s Baqaata office “have become clear to us,” noting that the incident “will not go without judicial and political accountability.”
“Delusional are those who believe that the Tawhid party is merely a building, an office or only walls, because Tawhid’s beliefs have become deep-rooted in people’s mind and the bombing cannot negate this fact,” Wahhab said, during a meeting with a delegation from the Free Patriotic Movement’s Shouf committee.
Wahhab urged security agencies to “exert serious efforts concerning the issue of the bombing that occurred in Baqaata, because this issue will not go without judicial and political accountability,” adding that his party “does not endorse the method of retaliation against such acts.”
“The issue requires further investigations and data gathering and let no one think that it is that hard to unveil the truth, because the main motives have become clear to us, and I hope the state will not allow anyone to take revenge into their own hands and to turn this region and other Lebanese regions into areas governed by the law of the jungle,” Wahhab added.
