Speaker of the Parliament Nabih Berri called on Tuesday for a parliamentary session to be scheduled for Thursday.
The session will be held at 11:00 a.m. at the UNESCO Palace to look into the port blast charges against the three MPs — Ali Hassan Khalil, Ghazi Zoaiter, Nouhad al-Mashnouq.
Several blocs had recently signed a controversial petition for prosecuting the three lawmakers before the Higher Council for the Trial of Presidents and Ministers. The move has been perceived by many as an attempt to provide political protection for some figures.
