In the case of the 2020 explosion at the port of Beirut, the capital of Lebanon, the then prime minister, two former ministers, the prosecutor general and three other judges were indicted, while 15 people, including top security officials, have been investigated.

Chief investigator Judge Tariq Bitar yesterday resumed the investigation after a year.

According to foreign media reports, in the case of the Beirut explosion, then Prime Minister Hassan Diab and two other ministers have been charged with bloodshed.

However, the charges against the Prosecutor General, other 3 judges were not explained.

The investigation into the Beirut blast has been stalled for more than a year due to political resistance from ruling factions and legal challenges against lead investigator Judge Tariq Beitar.

It should be noted that the explosion was caused by hundreds of tons of ammonium nitrate in the port of Beirut in 2020, in which 220 people were killed and more than 6500 were injured.
