Geagea: Hezbollah arms are biggest cause of unrest


Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea on Tuesday said Hezbollah arms are “the biggest cause for strife.”

“They say that the issue of false witnesses will cause strife in Lebanon. No. You are a cause for unrest. Hezbollah weapons, to us, are the biggest cause for strife,” Geagea said at a press conference from Maarab.

“Let us refer the events that took place May 7, 2008 and the events of Borj Abi Haidar to the Judicial Council before we refer a crime that did not occur,” he said, stressing that false witnesses do no exist.

Geagea believes that the “real purpose” of the opposition and its allies in Lebanon and outside Lebanon is that they do not want the International Tribunal.

“The aim at raising the false witnesses’ issue is to destroy the International Tribunal,” he said.

Geagea insisted that “we cannot talk about false witnesses before the trial is concluded, “adding that “there are no false testimonies.”

He said the investigating judge is the only person entitled to describe fake witnesses as “false witnesses.”

“Isn’t it normal to doubt those who promoted Abu Adas’ tape,” he asked.

Geagea believed that demands to refer the false witnesses’ report to the Judicial Council are “not innocent.” Naharnet
