Siniora: No one knows exactly when STL will release the Indictment

Share:

Former Lebanese PM and current leader of the Future Movement parliamentary bloc, said on Wednesday that “no one can assert with certainty the actual date of the announcement of the indictment by the Special Tribunal for Lebanon in the case of the 2005 assassination of Lebanon’s former former PM Rafik Hariri

Following talks in Cairo with Egyptian Prime Minister Essam Sharaf and outgoing Arab League chief Amr Moussa, Siniora denied the reports that the timing of the release of the indictment is aimed at “challenging the current government or embarrassing it regarding the issue of the ministerial Policy Statement.”

Responding to a question about the purpose of STL , Siniora said “It was necessary to refer this case to the international judiciary in order to stop the killings in Lebanon. Thus, we must address this issue in spite of what may be raised concerning the status of the Policy Statement.”

Siniora arrived in Cairo Wednesday morning to participate in an international forum organized “in support of Jerusalem and Palestine,” National News Agency reported.

The Iranian- and Syrian-backed Hezbollah brought down PM Saad Hariri’s government on January 12 over the Special Tribunal for Lebanon’s imminent indictment which is widely expected to implicate Hezbollah members in the assassination of former PM Rafik Hariri in 2005.

Mikati was appointed in January as the PM designate with the backing of the Hezbollah March 8 alliance and MPs Walid Jumblatt and Mohammad Safadi . March 14 leaders have repeatedly said that intimidation from Hezbollah’s weapons helped secure the parliamentary majority for Mikati’s nomination and refused to join the government.

The issue of the Special Tribunal for Lebanon delayed the drafting of the ministerial policy statement of the new cabinet but efforts to bridge the gap between Hezbollah and Prime minister Mikati have reportedly been successful according to al Manar TV and a copy of the statement was circulated to the cabinet this afternoon

The Special Tribunal for Lebanon , an international tribunal was created for the prosecution of those responsible for former PM Rafik Hariri’s assassination . Hariri was assassinated on on February 14, 2005. The tribunal also has jurisdiction over a series of other attacks in Lebanon (between 1 October 2004 and 12 December 2005) if they are proven to be connected with the Hariri assassination. The court is based in Leidschendam, near The Hague, in the Netherlands and it has a field office in the Lebanese capital Beirut.

    me i know
    you have to understand that’s it’s a plan The bomb was a german one and the UN was allready ok to accused Hezbollah They was thinking it will be easy to indict them and put them down
    but since so may things happen and they realized how hard it will be to put down Hezbollah
    so for now the plan is abandonned and who pay?Hariri and his friend like his head of security, poors litle things they no longer feel safe in their own country
    If there is any justice those guy (Hariri and his plotter) with the german firm who created the bomb and i guess the french agent who operates are the only ones who deserves to be judges

      Your pedaling against history, the arabe awakening is irreversible my friend. Which mean that pro stl seek justice and truth to eradicate violence and bring back a sense of security in order to prosper.

      The plan for me my friend is Ha and its allies wish to destroyed truth in order to protect their master Syria and Iran.  Please stop being lebanese and join the Syrian and Iranian citizenship. At leats you will be coherent with yourself and your master.

        i agree with everything you said mark, except the last phrase “with all due respect”..why do we need to respect people like that?? respect is something that is earned..respect on the part of march 14 is what got us here. the az3ar needs an az3ar to confront him. enough being nice just call these idiots what they realy are, idiots, stupid, terorists, murderers, thieves and traitors. in 2009 more then half of the lebanese elected the kind of government they want, in january the elections were made null and void..enough respect.

        no i haven’t a good english and am a bit sluggish so i don’t use to verify but for you i do.This bomb was a 2.1 first proof it’s that the hole left behind was a parralepipede it’s means that the blast have been extremely short and stop before the shock wave go far and lost his form.In techinacal term we can call that a perfectly localized (contenu in french) blast and that the signature of 2.1:higly destructive at one point barrely in effect 10 cm away.If you have any questions don’t hesitate

      Your prediction was very close but your a little far off, next time remember to include the part about that Hariri killed himself before the car actually blew up.

      And learn English you are actually really disturbing.

      Okay .. you want ‘mature’ discussion – and found out that a firecracker hurt your nose. Your silly thing about a bomb-effect on a body in a car is irrelevant considering all the factors controlling the flame-front of said bomb. But AS ALWAYS you fail to mention the other 20 dead people and the crowd of injured people on the street as well. 
       The fact is that this is an inhumane and cowardly way to assassinate someone, and seems the favorite method of terrorists who do not care about how many they kill to achieve that goal of creating terror. Terror and power is all they wish for … and anyone on their list of people to kill will probably be someone who is admired by the citizens – and those are people who do not like to be subjugated by dictators; people who enjoy a level of freedom to decide who their leaders will be by free and democratic methods.  You can not tell me that Hezbollah lives with any regard for democracy in Lebanon … or anywhere else for that matter.
      I advise you to use the internet to find out exactly what the International Court is – in a language you understand – because that IS available FREE information … and then maybe you will also be interested in it’s conclusions whenever they come out, as are the rest of the ‘mature’ people.

        c.mon you say mature discussion okay what ‘s means flame front only you in the world know competent people speak of wave front and as i said the wave front is sustain as long as the blast is contunuing if the blast is very very short the wave front or more exactly the front of the shock wave (your flame front )will stop short still conserving the initial form Are you physician or chemist or speccialised in explosif>Have you even ever hear of the chimique 2.1 I woul like mature discussion but with someone who know something not with an arrogant posturing
        The stl have ask for informations like : on all current account on all electricity gaz and telephone bills on all diploma collect by any student and so on and so on in fact exactly the same that ‘s the occupant zioniaste was collecting in his time do you thing the enquiry on the assassination need that when nobody is able at the stl to explain the configuration left behind the blast
        if you want to fool yourself you are free to do so but don’t hope followers

          Flame front burns and stops when it runs out of fuel. ‘Wave-front’ is shock-wave which travels furthur.
          I assume ‘the experts’ will draw the conclusions. I happen to trust the International Court. If you do not, that is your problem. End of discussion.
          What the hell does electricity and gas costs have to do with who pulled a trigger?  If you don’t like the taxes or paying for services, take it up with your local politician – you know, the one you elected to represent you.
