Beydoun accepts Wahab’s apology over fake checks


Former Minister Mohammed Abdul Hamid Beydoun told Voice of Lebanon radio station : I thank Wiam Wahhab for apologizing and I accepted his apology .

His comment comes after Wahhab’s press office issued the following statement on Friday:”We’ve found out that the checks we have recently published had been forged by the person who provided them to us , so we apologize to the people whose names appeared on the fake checks.”

Wahab , a staunch ally of Hezbollah and Syria revealed last Saturday photos of checks addressed to Future Movement MP Jamal al-Jarrah , Beydoun and another and Jamal Khaddam, the son of former Syrian Vice President Abdul Halim Khaddam.

Beydoun condemned Wahab’s announcement last Saturday , describing it as a “cheap game by the Syrian intelligence.”
