The Lebanese Center for Human Rights (CLDH) is a local non-profit, non-partisan Lebanese human rights organization in Beirut that was established by the Franco-Lebanese Movement SOLIDA (Support for Lebanese Detained Arbitrarily) in 2006. 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 - Ogassapian reiterates commitment to STL

Minister of State Jean Ogassapian reiterated his commitment to the Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL) to Future News on Sunday, saying, “committing to the STL is a primary choice.”

Ogassapian added that some public figures in Lebanon are making premature judgments as to the STL’s pending indictment.

Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said last month that the STL, which is probing the 2005 assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri is an “Israeli project” aiming to incite sedition in Lebanon. He also said that Prime Minister Saad Hariri informed him earlier this year that the tribunal will indict Hezbollah members.
