August 24, 2010 - Now Lebanon - Al-Balad: March 8 launches smear campaign against Najjar

An anonymous source from the March 14 alliance told Al-Balad newspaper in an interview published on Tuesday that the March 8 alliance ministers are launching a smear campaign against Justice Minister Ibrahim Najjar in matters related to the Special Tribunal for Lebanon’s (STL) false witnesses.

The cabinet delegated Najjar during its meeting last week to follow up on the issue of witnesses who gave false testimonies to the STL.

“They [the March 8 alliance] say that Najjar is the minister of the Lebanese Forces and not of justice,” the source said, adding that the campaign was being carried out to pressure Najjar into submitting to the cabinet a report on false witnesses against his own conviction.
