August 23, 2010 - Now Lebanon - Iranian officials might also be indicted by STL, says Hezbollah source

An anonymous Hezbollah source told Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Rai in an interview published on Monday that the party not only expects some of its members to be indicted by the Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL), but also believes that the indictment will include names of Iranian officials who have relations with Hezbollah.

The source said that the indictment will attempt to distort Hezbollah’s image and isolate it to pursue pressure on Iran.

An anonymous US source told Al-Liwaa newspaper in an interview published on Monday that Iran is making tense statements and addressing matters related to the STL out of fear that some Iranians would be indicted in the 2005 assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri.

On August 9, Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah showed video footage and the confession of an alleged spy, which he said implicate Israel in the Rafik Hariri murder.
