shiitenews musa sadrA Lebanese judicial security committee has announced that discovered body and clothes claimed to be Imam Musa Sadr’s, do not belong to the Lebanese Shia cleric.

According to Lebanon’s al Intiqad newspaper, the committee declared on Saturday that the DNA results from a sample of the body counter the claims that it is the revered cleric’s.

The committee also said it was astonished by Libya’s National Transitional Council chief Mustafa Abdul Jalil’s recent report over Sadr’s fate.

Abdul Jalil said on Thursday that investigations into Sadr’s fate and those of his two companions had been completed and would offer significant facts about the case.

“Investigations conducted by Libya’s judiciary into the circumstances of missing Imam Moussa Sadr and his two companions Sheikh Mohammad Yacoub and journalist Abbas Badreddine in 1978 will reveal for the first time important details,” Abdul Jalil told Dubai-based al-Arabiya news network.

Contrary to the claims made by the deposed Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi, the head of Libya’s interim government alleged that Imam Sadr had left the Libyan soil. According to the common notion, the cleric never left the North African country and the person, who actually departed from Libya, only resembled him in appearance.

Abdul Jalil pointed to the discovery of a mass grave in Libya, saying the country's officials had recently discovered the clothes of Imam Sadr. “We believe the body of Imam Moussa Sadr is among the other bodies in the mass grave.”

“Investigations have been finalized from our side and we are expecting the Lebanese authorities to declare the DNA results of a sample of a dead body, which is thought to be that of Imam Sadr, and we already provided them with this sample,” he said.

Imam Musa Sadr and his two companions were abducted in August 1978 during an official visit to the Libyan capital Tripoli to meet with officials from Gaddafi’s government.

The cleric of Iranian descent is widely believed to have been abducted on the orders of former Libyan officials.
