Torture Methods Used At Ministry of Defense (reported by SOLIDA)

Solida Full Report

“Every time i heard someone scream when he was on the Balanco or being electrocuted or I heard the squeak of a door, I woud feel a terrible pain in my stomach. I would shiver. I felt myself at the edge of utter despair trying to shut out the sounds of the screams. Even so I would hear everyone one of them, every electric shock.”
Jihad Sleiman, May 5, 1995

For those who dont know,
Jihad Sleiman was in charge of the security of Dr. Samir Geagea, the leader of the Lebanese Forces and was brought to Ministry of Defence after Hakim was jailed.

Those pictures below were drawn by George el Alam, another LFer who was arrested and tortured countless times.

What you just stated is complete nonsense.
First of all, the slaughter of people 3al hawiyyeh occured at a time there was no LF, and those who commited it were uncontrolled Christian militiamen.

LF had nothign to do with it since it did not exit.

As for Chamoun and Frangieh,
Geagea did not even get to Ehden but was injured after being trapped by Syrians on a check point. Frangieh was already dead.

In Chamoun's case, Dory Chamoun said it wasnt Geagea and trust me the pro-syrian government we had needed to accuse Geagea of any crime, yet they failed and bombed a church to put him in jail.

There is a 700 pages book on the Chamoun-Geagea trial, i suggest you read it instead of spreading lies.

But i wont take this from an LF perspective, if you have a party that slaughtered people, you torture its followers ?
How would that make u any better ?

It wasn't just the LFers who were tortured or persecuted at the Ministry of Defense.

We have to accept a fact that when it comes to human rights and prisons, we really lack human rights especially on the political front.

Aounists were even imprisoned during from 1990 until 2005, beaten up and treated like crap. I know a Aounist who was taken from his home for 40 days without anyone knowing about his whereabouts. He got beaten up badly and tortured during those 40 days. His family and friends looked all over the place to find him.

The ministry of defense is not even supposed to be a prison, and all other prisons should also not torture their prisoners... yet alone should treat their prisoners right.

Shame on us... Shame on anyone who thinks that this could be justified under any circumstances...

Thanks Rampurple for posting about this topic. More light should be shed on the torture practices against detainees in Lebanon.
