"And I have found both freedom and safety in my madness, the freedom of loneliness and the safety from being understood, for those who understand us enslave something in us. But let me not be too proud of my safety. Even a Thief in a jail is safe from another thief. "

Samaha Seeks to Withdraw Testimony during Retrial- Naharnet

Former Minister Michel Samaha on Thursday sought to withdraw his testimony to the Internal Security Forces on the terrorist plot that he was convicted for in May.
Samaha told the court during his retrial that he “cannot confirm his testimony to the Intelligence Branch because his mind was not clear when it raided his house” at the time of his arrest in August 2012.
He said the police officers terrorized him and began shouting during his questioning.
In April, Samaha admitted that he had transported explosives from Syria into Lebanon with the aim of targeting Lebanese politicians and religious figures.
