Accusation Body approves to set Hussein Yaacoub free, rejects objection on conditions

The Accusation Body presided by Judge Afif al-Hakim approved a while ago the release of Hussein Yaacoub and rejected his family's objection on the conditions set to release him according to the legal team defending the two Yaacoub brothers, National News Agency correspondent reported on Thursday.

It is to note that Mount Lebanon's Investigative Judge Peter Germanos Wednesday decided to release Hussein Yaacoub on bail, three days after Yaacoub's detention at Beirut's airport over his alleged involvement in the kidnapping of former Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi's son, Hannibal Gadhafi.
