Maarab hosts conference on disappeared and detained Lebanese citizens in Syria

The Lebanese Forces organized Thursday a conference on the Lebanese citizens who were forcibly disappeared and detained in Syrian jails, under the auspices of LF chief, Samir Geagea, at his residence in Maarab.

The event was attended by a panel of politicians, lawmakers, security and NGO figures, in addition to Consul Sultan al-Sebaihi representing Saudi Ambassador Waleed Bukhari.

In his word, Geagea renewed commitment to the case of the disappeared in Syria, accusing the Syrian regime of brutality.

“We gather here today to promise to keep their cause rooted in our conscience,” he said.

“Unveiling their destiny, repatriating those who are still alive and recuperating the martyrs’ bodies will remain among our priorities,” he stressed.

“It is true that the liberation of Lebanon was accomplished with the withdrawal of the Assad’s army. However, sovereignty is incomplete as there are still Lebanese detainees,” he added.

“This is what requires the reconsideration of the currently existing relation with this regime,” he said.

Geagea went on to say that the Syrian regime had released al-Qaida leaders from its prisons and enticed them to form Daesh, while it failed to free innocent Lebanese detainees.

“We are not prisoners of the past, but our unwavering position towards this regime stems from its very insistence on the same practices and perpetrations,” he concluded.
