Lebanese Foreign Minister Ali al- Shami is following up with Lebanon’s ambassador to Ukraine to determine the circumstances that led to the murder of Lebanese citizen Jamil Abdo Mansour. He instructed the ambassador to coordinate with the Ukrainian security authorities to find the perpetrators of the crime . An autopsy of the corpse of the victim revealed that he was hit on the head. The Ukrainian police informed the the Lebanese Embassy that they arrested 2 suspects in the crime and are now under investigation.
The body of 47-year-old Mansour arrived in Beirut Wednesday . The family told NNA it was not the first time that a Lebanese was attacked in the Ukrainian capital. It said authorities there have also previously tampered with evidence at crime scenes to cover up the “heinous crimes” rather than bringing perpetrators to justice.
