Gemayel: Ongoing Contacts with Syria over Missing Lebanese


Former Lebanese president and current Phalange Party leader Amin Gemayel said on Monday that there are ongoing contacts with a number of Syrian officials, including the head of the opposition Syrian National Council Burhan Ghalioun on the Lebanese missing in Syria

“The contacts are aimed at inquiring about the Lebanese missing in Syria,” Gemayel said at a press conference.

He said that the party obtained information about Boutros Khawand, who was kidnapped near his home in the Metn on September 15, 1992 while on his way to work.

However, the Syrian authorities deny that he was in their custody.
