iloubnan - Majdalani: We refuse to back away from cooperation with tribunal - July 26, 2011

Future Parliamentary bloc member deputy Atef Majdalani said March 14 refuse to back away from cooperation with the Special international tribunal for Lebanon. 

"The legal conference which will be held today at the Bristol Hotel is in the framework of achieving justice and will send a message to the international community and the Lebanese," the MP said. 

He denied knowledge of the procedures to apprehend the four accused men who were named in the indictment, accusing Hizbullah of protecting the suspects. 

"Our team expects the issuance of the indictment and then the government's commitment to resolution 1757, tribunal and all the protocols signed between the Lebanese government and the international tribunal and most importantly financing the tribunal." 

He stressed that March 14 will not accept anything less than the emergence of truth and the realization of justice. 

"March 14 forces are keen on maintaining democratic parliamentary system and freedom." 

Majdalani added that March 14 does not reject the trial in absentia but wonders why there is a Lebanese group that protects the accused, reiterating that the tribunal is composed of qualified and objective judges and lawyers.
