Now Lebanon - March 14 figures reaffirm commitment to STL - July 26, 2011

March 14 parties organized a Tuesday meeting at the Beirut Bristol Hotel, during which they reaffirmed support for the UN-backed Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL), which is probing former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri’s 2005 assassination.
The meeting, which comprised several March 14 figures and activists, was entitled “Justice for stability,” according to a statement issued by March 14.
Fadi Saad, a lawyer and a member of the Future Movement, read a statement calling for setting up a “permanent law bureau” to follow up on the work of the STL “until justice is served.”
He also called on UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and Arab League chief Nabil al-Arabi to keep supporting the tribunal.
Saad also urged the Lebanese relevant authorities to “shoulder their responsibility” and commit to international resolutions, including UN Security Council Resolution 1757, which established the STL.
The Hezbollah-led March 8 coalition forced the collapse of Saad Hariri’s government in January over the dispute about the tribunal.
The court indicted four members of Hezbollah in connection to Rafik Hariri’s murder, but the Shia group ruled out their arrest.
