NNA - Ambassador Ali Maoula's lawyer, Hassan Adel Bazzi, said on Thursday that his client was not behind the leak of diplomatic reports to the Foreign Ministry.

"We have proved that Ambassador Maoula is not the source of the leak of documents and we are reassured by the course of the investigation," he said, from the Palace of Justice of Beirut.

Bazzi added that the leak took place at the Lebanese embassy in Washington, and not at the Bustros Palace, stressing that the fact that the Al-Akhbar daily received a PDF document and not an original copy of the reports was the proof.
