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 26, 2010 - Now Lebanon - We do not acknowledge STL, says Hezbollah source

An unnamed Hezbollah source told An-Nahar newspaper in an interview published on Thursday that his party does not acknowledge the Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL), which is probing the 2005 assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri.

“We are not cooperating with STL [either],” the source said, adding that Hezbollah will only deal with the Lebanese judiciary.

The STL requested Hezbollah to submit all its material related to the Rafik Hariri murder.

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 killing of Rafik Hariri.

Last week, Attorney General Judge Said Mirza received from Hezbollah official Wafik Safa a file containing the information requested by the STL.
