Deputy UN Spokesperson Farhan Haq said on Monday that Mr. Guterres”took note” of this 22 December verdict from the nation’s Permanent Military Court, which sentenced and convicted 76-year-old Mahmoud Bazzi to 15 years in prison to its decades-old kidnapping and murdering 2 UN peacekeepers and resulting in serious harm to a third.

Mr. Bazzi was handed down a life sentence in prison, and that, due to his era, was instantly reduced to 15 decades.

The certainty relates to an abduction which happened in Lebanon in April, 1980.

Privates Smallhorne, age 31, and Barrett, age 30, were then murdered by Mr. Bazzi, allegedly in retaliation for the death of his brother, murdered in a previous firefight involving Irish and overburdened forces.

Mr. Bazzi was reported to have been part of the South Lebanon Army, a militia group, in the time of their killings.

Using somebody else’s passport Mr. Bazzi allegedly entered the United States about 25 decades back and was residing in Detroit, Michigan. Five decades back, he had been extradited over immigration offences and attempted in Lebanon for its murders.
