Yacoubian earlier this month had alleged that Butec was involved in a corrupt deal that led to its selection for implementing a Beirut incinerator project. Following her initial claims, the company filed suit against her on March 18, claiming she was working for the other companies who had prequalified to tender for the incinerator project.During a news conference earlier Thursday, Younes fired back specifically at the suggestion that his company had been selected in a backroom deal because it was headed by a Christian.In response to Yacoubian's earlier claims that she faced threats to her life, Younes had also made a sarcastic comment about protecting her "pure body" that the MP described as misogynistic.
