December 10 According to the Associated Press quoted Lebanese media on the 10th, the prosecutor investigating the Beirut bombing initiated a lawsuit against the caretaker Prime Minister Hassan Diab and three former ministers on the same day.

It is reported that the four people were prosecuted for negligence that led to the Beirut bombing on August 4, and they are also the highest-ranking people indicted so far in the investigation of the case.

Associated Press mentioned that the Lebanese people are increasingly dissatisfied due to the slow pace of the investigation, the lack of explanations and the fact that no senior officials have been prosecuted.

The Beirut explosion killed more than 200 people and injured thousands. Shortly after the explosion, then Prime Minister Diab announced the collective resignation of the government and served as the caretaker prime minister before the formation of the new government.

On December 9, Prime Minister-designate Hariri said that he submitted a list of 18-member cabinet to President Aun on the same day, composed of experts who are not affiliated with any political party.

Subsequently, the presidential palace issued a statement saying that President Orn also provided Hariri with a cabinet proposal, including the allocation of cabinet seats, and the two sides agreed to maintain communication and resolve differences.
