CONCORD, NH (AP) – The survivors of a Lebanese-American who filed an ambitious lawsuit last year alleging that the Lebanese security agency kidnapped and tortured him before he died in the United States are hoping to find an opening after the agency recently responded in an American court.
Amer Fakhoury died in August 2020 at the age of 57 in the United States after suffering from stage 4 lymphoma. His family’s lawsuit says he developed the disease and other serious medical problems while detained during a visit to Lebanon on decades-long allegations of murder and torture, which he denied.
