After getting arrested and beaten with rifles by army intelligence officers in broad daylight outside Dunkin Donuts in Batroun, and spending almost a week in Qobbeh prison in Tripoli, Pierre Hashash will be released tomorrow without any charges as reported by Naharnet.

Hashash will have to witness in a civil case though as his file was transferred to Baabda’s civil court. As for the army intelligence officers who brutally assaulted Pierre and made his head bleed, well there’s no mention of that in the report.

I am still puzzled as to why they beat up the poor man only to release him without any charges. I hope Kahwaji will take measures to prevent such incidents in the future.
