Former Prime Minister Fouad Siniora was forced to leave a Christmas musical concert held at American University of Beirut after heavy chants by AUB students demanding Siniora to leave.
“Out out out! We want Siniora out!” the concert attendees chanted.
Siniora, who was sitting in the front row, appeared not mindful by the chants at first. But then he was obliged to leave the concert due to constant chants that got louder.
Siniora, has been accused of spending $11 billion in extra budgetary spending during his premiership between 2005 and 2009.
Last November, he was questioned by a state prosecutor on how the $11 billion were spent while he was in power.
Also on November, Hezbollah MP Hasan Fadlallah slammed the lack of action against corrupted figures in the country despite that he had earlier submitted a pile of related dossiers to the judicial authorities.
Fadlallah, who was tasked by Hezbollah to follow up the file of corruption, said several obstacles hindered him from going ahead with countering corruption, referring to the sectarian cover the Mufti of the Republic Sheikh Abdel Latif Darian gave to Siniora when he said that the former PM is a “red line”.
