BEIRUT (Reuters) – Prominent Christian politician Gebran Bassil, son-in-law of the Lebanese president, said on Sunday that US sanctions against him were unfair and politically motivated and came after he refused to break links with Hezbollah to protect Lebanon

Bassil, in a televised speech, denied US corruption charges « These sanctions are an injustice and I will fight them and sue for damages, » he said

On Friday, the United States blacklisted Bassil, the leader of Lebanon’s largest Christian political bloc, accusing him of corruption and ties to the Iranian-backed Shiite Hezbollah movement that Washington considers a terrorist group
