Lebanon's president seeks evidence behind US sanctions on son-in-law

BEIRUT, Nov 7 (Reuters) - President Michel Aoun said that Lebanon would seek evidence and documents from the United States that led Washington to impose sanctions on Friday on prominent Christian politician and his son-in-law Gebran Bassil.

Aoun asked the country’s caretaker foreign minister to obtain the evidence and documents that should be submitted to Lebanon’s judiciary “to take the necessary legal measures”, said a statement on Saturday seen by Reuters and posted by the presidency on its Twitter account.
