Hezbollah’s leader Hassan Nasrallah allegedly claimed in a speech on Saturday that the investigator of the Beirut port blast was politically biased.
Beirut marked the one-year anniversary of the blast that destroyed huge areas of the city and killed more than 200 people on Thursday. The case is being led by a judge named Tarek Bittar.
“I am formally telling the family of the martyrs that this judicial investigator is playing politics, this is a politicized investigation,” Nasrallah said.
He went on to explain that he wasn’t demanding for Bitar to be fired right now, but that he should be subjected to a single standard and that the results of a technical investigation be made public.
Nasrallah also criticized people he did not name for blaming Hezbollah for the presence of the ammonium nitrate that caused the explosion.
“Where is your evidence for this ugly, heinous accusation? There is none,” he said.
