STL indictment may be made public before March 14 rally

According to local reports the indictment in the investigation into the assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri may be made public next week between March 8 and 10.

If this is the case then this will serve as a catalyst for rallying support for next Sunday’s demonstration which will mark the 6th anniversary of the Cedar Revolution.

March 14 alliance intends to rally the Lebanese against the illegal arms of Hezbollah which have been turned against the Lebanese citizens instead of Israel since 2006 for securing political advantages according to Kuwaiti al-Anbaa newspaper sources

STL Prosecutor Daniel Bellemare handed the indictment to STL’s pre-trial judge Daniel Fransen on January 17, but until now the contents of the indictment remain confidential .

STL chief of Public Affairs Crispin Thorold told MTV last January that the indictment’s content will not be announced before Fransen approves it , adding that the process could take from 6 to 10 weeks.

The Iranian- and Syrian-backed Hezbollah brought down PM Saad Hariri’s government on January 12 over the Special Tribunal for Lebanon’s imminent indictment which is widely expected to implicate Hezbollah members in the assassination of former PM Rafik Hariri in 2005

Nagib Mikati, who was backed by Hezbollah and its March 8 allies including MP Walid Jumblatt and Mohammad Safadi, was appointed on January 25 by president Michel Suleiman as PM-designate to form and head the next cabinet , giving Hezbollah and its allies increased leverage in the country and provoking widespread protest.

Mikati, Jumblatt, Safadi and their blocs were all elected on March 14 electoral lists during the 2009 parliamentary elections

Caretaker PM Hariri vowed on Monday to fight the use of non-state weapons in Lebanon in a “peaceful and democratic way.”

Minister of Social Affairs Selim Sayegh told MTV on Saturday that the” issue of Hezbollah arms cannot be dealt with through dialogue because these arms are being used as a tool to prevent the development of democratic life.” This is a possible reference to the alleged threats against MP Walid Jumblatt that resulted in the tilting the political balance in favor of Hezbollah.

    Good Morning,

    First of all I dont hate anyone,so I have no hate for a country or its people,
    i have a major issue with 14 azar and zionism and thats where it stops,im not gonna get in this whole debate of what part of Lebanon is more classier,cleaner,respectful,etc,for I as a person see all of Lebanon as perfect,each village to each major city,has a blood line of stories that can only be told by the dead and repeated by the living,just a couple of questions,you state that my hate for Israel is whats leading me where im at,cant i say the same bout ur hate for the Sayed,the same sayed that christians and muslims in the world at the very least respect,including Isralies,Noam Chomsky and Norman Finkelstien,including all parliment leaders in the world except israel and the US,and evn the US under Bill Gates is saying we should talk to HA,so my question is how is it this man has the respect of all these nations and educators,even a popular christian TV show in egypt had the host taking time to say we owe all our revolution success to SHN,and his honor and pride has over 80 million people support him from Egypt alone,and whats ironic bout that youtube video i saw,the one caller i saw and they had on there right after the revoultion he stated,”today is a proud day of Egypt the likes of Samir GeaGea will never again step foot in this country”:,he must of gone there alot for him to say that,and to be so disgusted by everything that the first thing u say is the likes of samir geagea will never be allowed in egypt again ,now thats deep to me….

    jnoubie is passionate,i will not speak on his behalf,but it seems to me the people of the south always seem to think u northern folks never accepted us,i remember being in school and this kid asked me where i was from and i told him south lebanon,and he said hahahaa we always call you guys the trailer trash or hill billys of our country,and then I even here we dont even consider the south part of Lebanon,ofcourse this was during our occupation,than god sent us a leader that didnt give up and he believed what he can do,and he freed us from the rape,murder and occupation,not for syria and not for iran,
    you can say he did it with the help of syria and iran,but no for….and today 11 years after our freedom you guys think its that easy to cut ties with the ones tht were there for u whn ur own goverment wasnt,imagine the respect they would lose world wide as users if all the sudden they start speaking against syria and iran….and as for jnoubie he probably feels this wouldve been a good time for the other side to stand with us and as usual they stand against us,so i see where his passion comes from,just some people share passion differently if i was to use the language that some use on here against us god knows how far these posts woudl go..but there has to some rational….

    In conclusion ,you stated hopefully the evidence is strong,do u really think no matter wht the evidence is or how fabricated it is,i mean its 7 years later alot can be done,that the lebanese like urself who hate the SHN and HA so much are not gonna believe whatever comes out,u see there is no more room for understanding from ur side,the stl has played it perfect,build suspense and let them continue the hate and thn whn the time is right what ever we present they will accept and hopefully get them into a civil war,now who would plan for somehing like that…hmmmmmmmmmmm……You see Fadi,the diff between u and i bro,and go back to my first post and read it,is if one outsider accused u of anything,i dont care if u are the son of geagea i would defend u like my brother,and u guys dont defend us,u guys stand with the ones that want to make us look bad or tarnish a reptutation, I guess the south was taught to treat all 10,452KM as a neighbor and treat the rest outside those lines as a stranger….

    Im not looking to fight or argue or at most offend anyone,but its soooooo hard guys whn i see no one is trying to understand where we are coming from,for god sakes some of the worlds most intelligent people support the resistance of Lebanon for the pride tht they didnt give up,and some of our own wanna bring us down,u see al qaeda and trash like that are hated by the world,but ask urself how come HA is not in tht boat…..and some of our own out thm in tht boat….

    Anyway I hope u have a good day…Im just hear to discuss politics not fight with anyone…ur all lebanese so we need to at the very least respect the generations before us that were from our blood line and somehow found a way to get over the civil war and co exist….Later

    • Fadi81

      again, im not to sure about all this world respect you seem to think HA has…nobody hates the south and its residents, infact I welcome HA with open arms to the Lebanese political seen and as a movement for its people. nothing is healthier then open debate. But ofcourse for us to move forward as a country we need to dismantle all militias and all arms are to be in the hands of the central elected government. no one wants to kill you or go to war with u, no one wants to push u into the sea…all we want is hezbollah to give up the weapons as all other Lebanese factions did, this can not go on any longer. Israel is no longer the problem, Syria and Iran are- u sound like a compassionate person so I ask u, do u agree with Irans human rights record and what they do to their own people? to move forward HA has to break all ties with the traitors and give up its arms and become a true political movement which will be the best case scenario for its people. lets agree that we are on the same page on this? and for the STL, well im not discrediting it as some before they even see what is brought forward. I am not paranoid, nor am I a fool. its either they have evidence to support whomever the indicte or they dont. you see its you that at any cost is willing to discredit it before even hearing what it has to say. do u not want the truth about the killings or are you happy to settle with blindness and think that Israel some how some way did it and everythng else must be fabrications? please free your mind and help us move this country forward together as one. its 2011 and technology has come a long way, believe me 7 years is not too long ago to solve this murder. With an operation this big there will be slip ups and mistakes made by the terrorists, and im sure they will all be brought to light.
