Judge Bitar row reemerges as Nasrallah calls for resignation

Hezbollah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah on Thursday decried "the ugly political exploitation against the resistance" in connection with the Beirut port blast case.

"The propaganda is still continuing against Hezbollah, although we have clarified that we had nothing to do with the ship and the nitrates," Nasrallah added during a Ashoura sermon.

"The resistance has original and military explosives and it doesn't need ammonium nitrate to manufacture explosives," Nasrallah noted.

Accusing the judiciary of "political exploitation," Hezbollah's leader said port blast investigator Judge Tarek Bitar is "obstructing the probe because he has not stepped down."

Nasrallah also alleged that "there are officers and judges responsible for the port incident who have not been interrogated."

He accordingly called for "returning to honest judicial work and opening the judicial course anew in order to hold accountable those responsible for this crime."
