Najjar to submit study on false witnesses to cabinet


The study of the false witnesses issue has reportedly been completed, An-Nahar newspaper said Tuesday.

An-Nahar said Lebanon Justice Minister Ibrahim Najjar has completed the “legal study” on this issue and will present it to Cabinet at its next meeting.

Najjar had reportedly received written questions and answers from Hezbollah with regards to the false witnesses’ issue.

The justice minister, however, declined to disclose the content of his study prior to submission to Cabinet.

According to Ya Libnan legal advisers there is no such a thing as a false witness before indictments are made . Only the courts during the trial can determine whether a witness is for real or false. At this stage no body knows who will be indicted, despite the fact that Nasrallah has revealed that some members of the party will be indicted. Such information is not coming from STL …such information is most probably assumptions or extrapolations coming from Hezbollah members that were interrogated by the Investigators. The trials will start after the indictments are made . There are 12 judges , 4 of them are Lebanese .

Many Lebanese legal experts believe that the issue of false witnesses is being used by Hezbollah and its allies to undermine and discredit the Special Tribunal for Lebanon.

  1. Every one who was involved in giving false statements should be detained and forced to admit who paid him or pushed him to give false statements. Those what they call false witnesses are the only living proof that would point us to the real killers
