Mustafa Nasser Denies Saqr’s Claims about Mediation with Sayyed

Mustafa Nasser Denies Saqr’s Claims about Mediation with Sayyed

20/09/2010 Once again, the Future movement seems to embroil itself into a “trust” crisis…

After turning the political crisis with Hezbollah into a sectarian one without any justification, the movement seems to “fabricate” false stories about “mediations” here and there…

On Monday, MP Ouqab Saqr claimed that journalist Mustafa Nasser was a “mediator” between Prime Minister Saad Hariri and Former General Security chief Major General Jamil as-Sayyed. According to Saqr’s “story,” Nasser informed Hariri that Sayyed was ready to “turn the page” in exchange of 15 millions of dollars.

But, before the end of the day, the denial came from Nasser himself.

“I haven't played during my journalistic and political life any role other than that related to contacts between Rafiq and Saad Hariri and Hezbollah,” Nasser said in a statement he released.

Nasser also stressed he had no relation, of any type, with Major General Jamil Sayyed when he was assuming his official duties or after that period.

“What the media has circulated, about a certain mediation I made, is inaccurate,” he concluded.

Hariri's 'spokesboy': "Der Spiegel's story on Hezbollah was written by Jamil Assayed ..."

"... Saqr on Monday accused former General Security Department chief Maj. Gen. Jamil Sayyed of fabricating the story published by German magazine Der Spiegel last year about the alleged involvement of Hizbullah in ex-Premier Rafik Hariri's assassination.
"What was published by the German Der Spiegel was fabricated by Jamil Sayyed,....We don't want an apology from Hizbullah but we want the Lebanese to know … who spread the rumor" to Der Spiegel, the lawmaker said.
Last week, Saqr accused Sayyed of dispatching a man to Premier Saad Hariri asking for $15 million in return for giving up his case.
Saqr urged Hizbullah to beware and not to play with fire saying there were attempts to ignite Shiite-Sunni strife in the region, including Lebanon...."
