Mashnouq: Cabinet of Hariri Murder Suspects Cannot Implement STL Decisions

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Mustaqbal bloc MP Nohad al-Mashnouq described the government as being that of the suspects in the assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri seeing as it includes Hizbullah members.

The Special Tribunal for Lebanon released the first phase of its indictment in June, as well as arrest warrants against four Hizbullah members suspected of being involved in Hariri’s 2005 assassination.

Mashnouq told the pan-Arab daily Asharq al-Awsat in remarks published on Sunday: “Such a government cannot be trusted to cooperate with the STL or implement its decisions.”

The MP also defended the STL’s release of the names, photos, and biographies of the suspects, saying it is part of its procedures.

Furthermore, he supported Progressive Socialist Party leader MP Walid Jumblat’s call to tackle the indictment at the national dialogue and the cabinet’s responsibilities towards it.

“The dialogue must be held before Pre-Trial Judge Daniel Fransen takes the decision to release the details of the indictment that will definitely hold facts whose consequences we must cater for before they happen,” Mashnouq stressed.

“Whoever is seeking to tackle any other issues besides the indictment and Hizbullah’s arms is delusional,” he added.

“Political life in Lebanon cannot persist under the threat of the weapons and a vision that incorporates the arms in the state should be reached,” he continued.

“We want the arms to enjoy Lebanese consensus and fall under the state’s authority,” he explained.

“We have the need for a resistance given Israel’s repeated assaults, but it should lie in the hands of the state and not in the control of a party,” said the Mustaqbal MP.

Oh, go screw yourself, you two-faced creep. If I were Rafic Hariri and were still alive and saw and heard what these opportunists have been saying and doing, I would have killed myself of begged for someone to kill me.

Educated Lebanese, do you realize that you are insulting every person who comments? Surely, you seem very educated! By the way, it took me no more than 3 minutes to browse through the comments and make one of my own.

“We want the arms to enjoy Lebanese consensus and fall under the state’s authority”

“We have the need for a resistance given Israel’s repeated assaults, but it should lie in the hands of the state and not in the control of a party”

We used to have a country that represented us as Real Lebanese. We used to have a country that allowed us to dream about a bright future. We used to have a country that rejected criminal minds ! The Arms and their Allies killed Lebanon that i dream of... the Lebanon that i live for.

Unfortunately the above words will never be understood by the concerned parties as their hearts are filled with enviness and hatred... they just hate us for being wise, mature & true Muslims. The Truth will reveal sooner or later.
