Gemayel says some parties do not want justice in Lebanon


Former Lebanese president and current Phalange Party leader Amin Gemayel said on Sunday in Cairo that there are some Lebanese parties “whose stances are very negative and absurd do not want justice in Lebanon to take its course,” National News Agency reported.

Gemayel, who is on an official visit in Egypt, told reporters following his meeting with Egyptian Foreign Minister Mohammad Amr, that “until now, there are no positive indications that the problem regarding the Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL) will be resolved.”

Asked about the Syrian situation, the Gemaye voiced hope that the situation in Syria “stabilizes” and that “ the brutal crackdown against the Syrian people, and which violates human rights, stop.”

“ I hope the Syrian people are liberated from the restrictions that have been imposed on them for decades…and that bloodshed comes to an end in Syria .”

According to the United Nations, the Syrian regime’s crackdown on protests that erupted in mid-March has killed more than 3,000 people.
