MP Charbel Maroun of the Free Patriotic Movement-led Strong Lebanon bloc was on Tuesday summoned for judicial interrogation over his recent remarks against Higher Judicial Council chief Judge Suheil Abboud.

The interrogation session has been scheduled for Thursday.

Maroun had lashed out at Abboud during a sit-in outside the latter’s house in Ballouneh. The sit-in was organized by families of detainees held in the Beirut port blast case.

During the protest, Maroun slammed Abboud as a “mafioso” and a number of judges as “criminals” while saying that “the judiciary is corrupt and a militia.”
