Al-Arabiya reported, in an investigation entitled “The“ mysterious ”death of an officer in Lebanon .. Does it have anything to do with the port of Beirut?” Journalist Johnny Fakhry said, “In a security incident remarkable for its timing four months after the Beirut port explosion on August 4, the colonel was found. A retired customs officer, Munir Abu Rajeli, had a dead body inside his home in Qartaba, Jbeil District (about 37 kilometers from the capital Beirut) in the Mount Lebanon Governorate, with blows to the head from a sharp object.According to the investigation, “investigations are continuing to find out the causes of the crime, which suggested some information was motivated by theft, because the victim’s house is neutral in an isolated land on the outskirts of the town of Qartaba, and he was inspecting the maintenance work carried out by workers, and when the time was late, he decided to spend his night at home and return in the morning. To Beirut, and when his wife tried to call him more than once to check on him, she did not receive an answer. Then she followed him to the mountain home and found him dead inside the house.

Security sources only said: “Colonel Abu Rajeli was killed with a sharp object on the head while he was sleeping in his bed, and there are no signs of dislocation and breakage of the main door of the house.”

According to information obtained from more than one person from the town of Qartaba: “The retired Colonel Munir Abu Rajaili held more than one position in the Customs Directorate, was a member of the Supreme Council of Customs, and moved positions between the airport and Beirut port and monitored border crossings, and finally took over the leadership of the anti-smuggling department in Customs before being referred to retirement nearly two years ago. “And they ruled out that “Colonel Abu Rajeli was killed as a result of theft, because whoever steals valuable items such as jewelry, weapons, electrical machines, etc. are searched for … which did not happen in Colonel Abu Rajeli’s house.”

What is likely “hypothesis” is that the cause of his “mysterious” death is related to the investigations of the Beirut port explosion. The judicial investigator, Judge Fadi Sawan, is investigating everyone who has held responsibility in the Beirut port since the arrival of the Rhosus vessel loaded with “ammonium nitrate” in 2012, whether he was a minister Or an officer or an official in the port administration.

From here, informed sources did not exclude: “Colonel Abu Rajaili had been summoned to the investigation some time ago and gave important information about the“ ship of death ”that might have helped uncover the clues of the crime of the port explosion, so he was physically liquidated.

And she considered that “the state can quickly reveal the circumstances of the crime, especially since there are surveillance cameras installed in the town of Qartaba at more than one point.”

The deceased is 58 years old, father of four, who retired from customs nearly two years ago.

In addition, information obtained from people from the town of Qartaba indicated that the slain had a friendship with Colonel Joseph Skaf, who died in 2017 in mysterious circumstances. Two contradictory reports were received by two forensic doctors, one of which indicated that the death is natural, and the second confirmed that there are those who stand Behind the killing of the colonel, especially after bruising his head.

Days after the Beirut port explosion, the son of Colonel Joseph Skaff posted on his account: “In March 2017, a crime was committed against retired Customs Colonel Joseph Skaf, who did not fall as it was said. The colonel was brutally attacked and killed in front of his house.” He added, “The case has not been closed, and the family has been waiting for a serious and transparent investigation for 3 years to uncover the circumstances of the crime.”

Colonel Joseph Skaff had previously written a letter in February 2014 to the “Inspection and Search for Smuggling Service” of the Ministry of Finance, in which he demanded the removal of the ship Rhosus, loaded with 2750 tons of “ammonium nitrate” on board, outside Berth 11 in the Beirut port, and demanded that it be placed under supervision. , I.e. its load.
