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.

NOW Lebanon- Cabinet’s Wednesday session is tentative , November 30, 2011

According to a local daily, the session will likely be postponed in order to resolve the disagreements over the funding of the Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL) as well as  over the demands of Change and Reform bloc leader MP Michel Aoun.
“The solution was to postpone the cabinet meeting, which was set to be held today at the Baabda Presidential Palace,” An-Nahar newspaper reported on Wednesday.
It added that the session might be delayed “in order to avoid Aoun’s ministers’ possible move to boycott the cabinet.”
The paper also said that “a promise was made to resolve the stalemate of financing the STL and address Aoun’s demands.”
However, no official statement has been issued regarding the government’s meeting.
On Tuesday, Aoun said that “there is a possibility to start resolving… complicated issues,” in a reference to the disputes over funding the STL.
Aoun’s ministers boycotted last Friday’s cabinet session, and called on the government to carry out several projects that are at a stalemate after Prime Minister Najib Mikati threatened to resign if the cabinet fails to provide its funding share to the STL.

The Lebanese government is dominated by Hezbollah and its allies, which are insisting that the country cease all cooperation with the STL.
The UN-backed STL has charged four Hezbollah operatives in connection with the assassination.
