The head of a pro-Syrian party based in Tripoli is expected to appear for questioning before the Judicial Council Saturday after disappearing for over a year, in what sources consider a sign of an agreement that could see the release of rival militia commanders.In February 2014, Military Investigative Judge Riyad Abu Ghayda issued an arrest warrant in absentia for Eid over his alleged involvement in aiding a suspect in the bombings, his driver, flee into Syria.Eid will appear for questioning days after the arrest warrant issued against him by the Military Court last year was withdrawn.Earlier this week, Justice Minister Ashraf Rifi clarified that the withdrawal of the arrest warrant for Eid was a routine measure after the case was referred to the Judicial Council, which investigates national security cases.A political source in Tripoli said that despite Rifi's justification the expected return of Eid indicated that a political settlement had been reached between the rival parties, one that could lead to the release of the detained militia commanders as well.
