After 10 requests for release – all blocked – it is clear that Georges Abdallah is detained for reasons of retaliation rather than for judicial reasons. We do not trust the independence of the French judiciary and our nation should not trust it. Lebanese diplomacy must move to correct this mistake immediately and obtain unconditional release of the prisoner Georges Abdallah!
This event comes amid a march in Lannemezan outside the prison of Georges Abdallah in France, and alongside events in several countries, including Belgium, Greece, Tunisia and others, to confirm that the continuing imprisonment of Georges Abdallah is a shame for French authorities. We will not rest until he returns to Beirut!
