March 14 calls Syrian arrest warrants unacceptable and illegal

Share:

March 14 ministers held a meeting before Monday evening’s cabinet session and agreed that the arrest warrants issued by Syria are “unacceptable and illegal, in both legal or diplomatic terms,” MTV reported.

Their meeting was held before the cabinet session at the Baabda palace.

March 14 General-Secretariat Coordinator Fares Soueid called the arrest warrants: “A Syrian inclination toward undermining Lebanon’s stability and turning away from Syrian pledges of opening a new page with the Lebanese State. ”

On Sunday the Syrian judiciary issued 33 arrest warrants for judges, officers, politicians and journalists of Lebanese, Arab and other nationalities in the case brought by former Lebanese General Security chief Jamil as-Sayyed, according to a statement from Sayyed’s office.

Sayyed along with 3 other generals was detained from 2005 to 2009 on suspicion of involvement in former PM Rafik Hariri’s murder. In April 2009, the Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL ) ordered their release without charges due to insufficient evidence. STL prosecutor made it clear at the time they were set free that their release did not mean they are Innocent and that once more evidence is available they could be back in jail.

In December 2009, Sayyed filed a lawsuit in Damascus against various defendants whom he alleges were involved in a conspiracy of false testimonies against him.

    Guys what you expect from the Syrian judiciary system, gthis is how they get educated in Syria, as Chamoun was said to Kaddam, griaduate from Saasaa university. The Unesco doesn’t recognize the Universities of Damascus for Medicine or any other, and I wonder the Judge who issued the warrant ,what law he refer too to have arrest against ciitizens from different countries for a person who was assassinated in lebanon, it looks the whole Syria is a saasaa university, or haret Kil min ido eloh, the miserbale thing that we Lebanese alloowed ourselves to be rules by Donkeys!!!!

    We need a Syrian from Hama to come to a Lebanese ocurt ( as the Sayyed did ) and file a law suit to against Rifaat el Assad and Lebanese judge should issue an arrest warrant against Rifaat el Assad and send it to the Interpol. You need to treat the idiots in Syria the same way , we shouldn’t allow the donkeys to play with us anymore enough is enough!!!!

  12. Prophet How are you I use to follow you with moustapha, marc, & cathy… Please explain to me why Hezbollah trying to instill fear in the heart & mind of march 14. They sound like they are affraid of an indictment and are trying to protect themself. I understand when you say that Geagea is a criminal. I believe he reformed himself in prison. He is much better person. Hez leaders should go trought the same process… We need in our nation leader who learn from their flaw.

      Choueri,I hope all is well with you.I’m doing very well, Thank you for asking.I won’t get into tit for tat. I’ll give you my views and walk away,lolWhether I’m commenting on an article featured at this site, or responding to a comment posted by other readers, I only express my own views and convictions. I never speak for ,or on behalf of, any party or organization. As a matter of fact I never had, never do ,and never will have , loyalty to any Lebanese party. My humble views are mine, and represent my own understanding of events taken place. They may not mean much, but I express them anyway. Lebanese have been dealt few bad hands that we can’t stop talking about .lolI truly believe that March 14 is terrified because of the false accusations, and false witnesses they orchestrated during the last 5 years. They are terrified that everyone knows that they used these false accusations to win the 2005 election. They are terrified because they can’t account for the billions of dollars (11Blions) they spent during the Seniora era. They are terrified because their credibility is ruined.The fact that I’m not a March 14 (I doubt that March 14 exists anymore) supporter , does not necessarily make me a March 8 supporter. I may agree with the general views of March 8, and still disagree with other views of theirs. The same goes for March 14, I don’t agree much with them, though I have agreed with them at times.My support for people’s right to resist occupations , and the right to defend One’s own country, has always been part of my natural views, regardless of who is leading this resistance( before either HA or the Iranian revolution was conceived)The fact that I grew up in the south, makes it even more necessary support those rights. As a southerner, I have no faith in any international organization, UN resolution, or UN tribunal.I have no faith in the international community either. None of the above has ever protected me from Israel. They always took Israel’s side. I could careless for any call ,to respect the so called international community, since this same community never respected my rights to grow up is a safe environment. It never protected me. It always sided with my enemy, killer, and occupier. This has been going on since the late 40’s.Again before HA was conceived.

      Sadly enough, my own state had abandoned its own territories and people. It didn’t or couldn’t defend it.. Even more sadly, some of my fellow Lebanese sided with our enemy. I still have some faith in a future Lebanon, But not when those who had supported my enemy are calling the shots. My views of Geagea have not changed since the nineties. In my views a criminal is always a criminal. Geagea isn’t the only criminal; all of the warlords (from all sects) who championed the civil war are as criminal as Geagea.I could never imagine someone, who is responsible for the death of thousands of people, being reformed. Even then, His victims have the right not to believe his alleged reforms, because it won’t make a difference to them.It is sad that most Lebanese are still worshipping those leaders, and consider them to be Heroes
