Iranian proxy Lebanon is not giving up terrorists for extradition.
WHAT’S HAPPENING BEHIND THE SCENES OF BULGARIA’S HEZBOLLAH TERROR TRIAL?
As relatives of victims of the Burgas bombing journeyed to Bulgaria on Tuesday to commemorate the terrorist attack’s fifth anniversary, one wonders whether there is more than meets the eye going on with the case?
On one hand, five years have passed with little to show in starting the trial’s substantive phase of calling witnesses so any kind of verdict can become visible on the horizon. On the other hand, Israeli victims’ lawyer Yaki Rand told The Jerusalem Post recently, “There is a lot more going on behind the scenes.”
According to the Bulgarian government and US and EU authorities, three Hezbollah operatives blew up an Israeli tour bus in the seaside resort of Burgas on July 18, 2012, killing five Israelis and their Bulgarian Muslim bus driver. The bomb also killed Lebanese-French national Muhammad Hassan El-Husseini, who brought the explosive onto the bus. Two suspects – Lebanese-Australian Meliad Farah and Lebanese-Canadian Hassan El Hajj Hassan – fled to Lebanon. Lebanese authorities have ignored Bulgarian extradition requests.
