Case summary

On Thursday, December 10, 2020, the State Security Agency investigated Roger Bejjani for 9 hours, and his apartment, phone and computer were searched at the request of the Public Prosecutor, against the background of 3 Facebook posts written in English. The first was about an analysis of the port competition between Haifa and Beirut, in which is concluded that he recommended a negotiated peace agreement with Israel, which could only benefit Lebanon and the Lebanese, and the second post was support for the maritime border demarcation negotiations in which Lebanon is participating with hope for more Demarcation of the land borders, thus eliminating all opportunities for hostilities and ultimately benefiting the people of southern Lebanon with stability and peace, and promoting peace through negotiation. The third post was about a former general whose name was not mentioned, but was assumed by the agitators as referring to the current president.
