Lebanese security refers Zaman al-Wasl reporter for Public Prosecution
 (Zaman Al Wasl)- Lebanese State Intelligence has referred Zaman al-Wasl reporter, Abdul Hafiz al-Houlani for the Public Prosecution after four days of detention.

Al-Houlani, who lives in Arsal's refugee camps, was not charged with a crime or offence. 

He was arrested on Wednesday following his report over 20 Syrian refugee women who were aborted due to polluted water.

Since the press freedom is fundamental to any democratic society, Zaman Al Wasl demands the Lebanese government to release al-Houlani and to not undermine freedom of speech under any pretext.

Zaman Al Wasl calls on International rights groups to press on the Lebanese authorities to release our jailed journalist.
