August 23, 2010 - Now Lebanon - Nadim Gemayel rejects cancelling STL

During a Monday ceremony marking the anniversary of the election of late former President Bachir Gemayel, Kataeb Party bloc MP Nadim Gemayel—who is the son of Bachir—rejected the cancellation of the Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL), saying it would lead to the collapse of the government.

“The STL does not only concern Prime Minister Saad Hariri, Kataeb Party leader Amin Gemayel, or a [a certain sect]. It concerns all those who aspire for a free country,” Gemayel said.

He added that there would be more political assassinations if not for the tribunal.

Gemayel also said that he is against politicizing the STL.

“Bachir Gemayel brought hope to Lebanon and succeeded in uniting Lebanon for 21 days,” the MP said, referring to the former’s short term as president before his 1982 assassination.
