March 14 official: Hezbollah chief invented a new tribunal


March 14 General Coordinator Fares Soueid told the Voice of Lebanon (VOL) radio station on Thursday that Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah “has invented a new tribunal with the Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL).”

He was commenting Nasrallah ‘s speech on Tuesday in which he said he will reveal during a press conference on August 9 the evidence proving that Israel was behind the 2005 assassination of Lebanon’s former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri.

STL was created by the UN to try Hariri killers.

Commenting on the recent arrest of FPM official Brigadier General Fayez Karam on suspicion of collaborating with Israel, he said he was surprised by the arrest . He added that “no one is safe , even those who believe their party has political innocence,” referring to FPM leader MP Michel Aoun.

However, Soueid said that Lebanese political figures should remain silent until the judiciary issues its verdict on Karam, who, according to Al-Manar television, confessed to spying for Israel since 2005.
