Tuesday’s verdict brings the total number of suspects accused to 33, including 25 who are in custody and two at-large, the state-run National News Agency reported.

 Hani Hajj Shehadi, a member of the Higher Customs Council and a former Port of Beirut chief, Moussa Hazimeh, were charged in connection with the explosion.

An investigative judge will now hear their testimonies after previously subpoenaing them as witnesses in the explosion.
