SOLIDA has been active since 1996 in the struggle against arbitrary detention, enforced disappearance and the impunity of those perpetrating gross human violations.

March 27, 2010 - Now Lebanon - Not just Mugniyah, Wahhab claims Iran also being linked with Hariri murder

In an interview with As-Sharq al-Awsat newspaper published on Saturday, Tawhid Movement leader MP Wiam Wahhab expanded on his claim earlier in the week that the Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL) is leaking information that it is attempting to link former Hezbollah official Imad Mugniyah – who was assassinated in Syria in 2008 - with the assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri. The Iranian Revolutionary Guard is also being linked to the investigation, he said.

Wahhab said the alleged move comes after the STL failed to accuse Syria of being involved in the 2005 assassination.

The Tawhid Movement leader also said that the STL is calling in 15 Hezbollah officials for interrogations.

The MP criticized STL Prosecutor Daniel Bellemare for failing to take internal Lebanese balance and the sensitivity between Sunni and Shia Muslims into consideration.

Wahhab said Bellemare is responsible for the STL information leaks, but said the leaks have no purpose.
