Hezbollah preparing to face STL indictment, report

Share:

All political and legal data clearly indicate that Hezbollah has finally recognized the inevitability of being indicted by the Special Tribunal for Lebanon ( STL) in the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, and that all the pressures exerted by the party both internally and regionally have failed in burying this indictment and in delaying it for a long time , according to political sources of al Sharq al Awsat newspaper.

“Resorting to violence ( as in May 2008 ) will not change anything for Hezbollah, on the contrary this may increase its losses” , according to the sources.

Hezbollah is therefore moving to face the consequences of the indictment and has reportedly prepared an action plan to prevent the implementation of the indictment . This involves the refusal to hand over any of its accused elements or those of the opposition. Sources also told al Sharq al Awsat that Hezbollah and the opposition will use all political and constitutional means to prevent the implementation of the indictment through the government by blocking the funding for the tribunal.

According legal experts, financing the tribunal will not be a problem if Hezbollah succeeds in blocking the Lebanese funds . Based on article 1737 of the tribunal other countries can step in an provide the financing if required

    a state within a sate
    they raise their own flag not the lebaneese flag
    they have their own army and thier own line of foreign weapons supplies
    this another alqueeda (shias); they kill mp harriri because they had plans to dominate lebanon to make it a hia,s state and mp harriri was not going to allow that
    what else the state to see so they can know that this is a conspiracy against its sovreinity
    its time for the government to order them to turn in thier havy weapons and declare them illegal if they do,nt obey the governement order within two weeks
    sovreignity
    the governemnet got to be blind not to see that

      You won’t justify fingering the shias in Lebanon for a foreign, non partial tribunal, will you ?
