Hezbollah chief: The cabinet will not fund STL

Share:

Al-Akhbar newspaper quoted on Thursday Hezbollah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah’s visitors as saying that “the cabinet will not pay” its share of funding to the Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL).

Hezbollah-led March 8 parties who currently dominate Lebanon’s cabinet – have opposed a clause in the Lebanese annual state budget pertaining to the funding of the tribunal which is probing the 2005 assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri. On the other hand the centrist group of the cabinet which is controlled by president Suleiman, PM Mikati and MP Jumblatt have been calling for funding the STL.

Lebanon contributes 49 percent of the STL’s annual funding.

Four Hezbollah members have been indicted by the STL. However, the Shiite militant group strongly denied the charges and refuses to cooperate with the court.
