BEIRUT: Speaker Nabih Berri is expected to accept Friday the resignation of Hezbollah MP Nawwaf Musawi, a day after the embattled lawmaker submitted his resignation to Parliament.
Last week, Musawi was allegedly involved in a shooting at a police station in Damour.
According to a leaked police report, Musawi and a dozen gunmen attempted to storm the station where his daughter and her ex-husband had been brought following a high-speed car chase.
After Musawi's group was denied entry to the station, the report said a gunshot was fired, hitting the ex-son-in-law in his wrist. Musawi denied firing. The dramatic dispute was apparently over child visitation rights, a dispute that had been dominating local media.
Earlier this year, the group suspended Musawi's political activities because of a public spat with rival politicians in Parliament in regards to late President-elect Bachir Gemayel, who was assassinated in 1982.
