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

August 22, 2010 - Now Lebanon - Habib: STL reached point where it cannot be affected

During a Saturday dinner event, Lebanese Forces bloc MP Farid Habib said that the Special Tribunal for Lebanon’s (STL) probe has reached a phase in which no local or international actor can affect its decisions, the National News Agency (NNA) reported on Sunday.

He also criticized Free Patriotic Movement leader MP Michel Aoun without naming him, saying that “it is unfortunate that a [former] high-ranking Lebanese army official is obstructing President Michel Sleiman’s efforts to empower the Lebanese army and let it enforce its authority over Lebanese territories.”

Habib’s criticism came in response to Aoun’s alliance and support of Hezbollah.

Sleiman called for empowering the Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF) following the border skirmish between Lebanese and Israeli troops near the southern village of Aadaiseh earlier this month.
