August 24, 2010 - Now Lebanon - Alain Aoun warns of STL indictment’s influence on cabinet

Change and Reform bloc MP Alain Aoun told OTV on Tuesday that changing the cabinet will not happen, however, he warned that the cabinet could be affected by divisions over the Special Tribunal for Lebanon’s (STL) pending indictment.

He also said that the “STL should correct its path by resolving the issue of false witnesses.”

The cabinet delegated Justice Minister Ibrahim Najjar during a meeting last week to follow up on the issue of witnesses who gave false testimonies to the STL, which is probing the 2005 assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri.

Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah earlier this month said he doubted the tribunal’s credibility and called for forming a Lebanese commission to investigate alleged false witnesses used in the STL’s investigation into the Rafik Hariri murder.
