Now Lebanon - Abboud fears STL will meddle with evidence - October 31, 2010

Tourism Minister Fadi Abboud – a Free Patriotic Movement member – said Sunday that he fears some evidence pertaining to the 2005 assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri will be meddled with by the Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL).
The Change and Reform bloc minister told NBN television that the issue of “false witnesses” is no longer the most important matter after Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah’s Thursday statements.
The Hezbollah chief called on all Lebanese to boycott the UN probe and to end all cooperation with its investigators.
March 8 politicians have called for the cabinet to task the Justice Council with investigating the issue of witnesses who gave false testimonies in the international investigation into the killing of Rafik Hariri. Some March 14 figures have said that the issue does not fall within the council’s jurisdiction and that false testimonies cannot be investigated until the tribunal issues its indictment.
