Naharnet - Franjieh Backs Nasrallah's Stance, Calls on Hariri to Reject STL - October 30, 2010

Marada Movement leader MP Suleiman Franjieh on Saturday voiced his support for Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah's recent call for boycotting U.N. investigators, describing it as "rightful."
In an interview with Hizbullah's mouthpiece Al-Manar television, Franjieh called on Premier Saad Hariri to declare that the Special Tribunal for Lebanon is "politicized and rejected," stressing that the premier must seek the bringing of the so-called "false witnesses" to justice.

Tackling the highly-anticipated upcoming cabinet session and the dispute about referring the false witnesses issue to the Judicial Council, Franjieh said: "I trust the stances of President Michel Suleiman and Head of Democratic Gathering MP Walid Jumblat."

He noted that Hariri should be the first one to back referring the case to the Judicial Council.

Franjieh accused the Lebanese Judiciary of taking orders from politicians, stressing that State Prosecutor Saeed Mirza "takes his orders from Saad Hariri."

The Marada leader voiced his regret that "the blood of late premier Rafik Hariri is being used to harm the Resistance."

Franjieh also voiced his regret that the stance of Maronite Patriarch Nasrallah Sfeir "reflects the viewpoint of only one group of Christians."
