iloubnan - STL delegation: attempted assassinations of Hmadeh, Murr and Hawi are linked to Hariri, unlike Chidiac - August 12, 2011

A delegation from the Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL) informed Thursday former Ministers Elias Murr and Marwan Hmadeh that their attempted assassinations were related to the murder of former PM Rafik Hariri, while the case of May Chidiac was not.

It was also revealed that the assassination of former secretary general of Lebanese Communist Party George Hawi was linked to the Hariri case.

STL delegation listened to the three survivors and relayed to them the relationship of the four wanted men to each of their cases.

The four culprits are members of Hezbollah and are still on the loose.

Murr said on Thursday that he will not file a personal lawsuit against the culprits, but was ready to pay for the  lawyers of parents of the men who died during his attempted assassination.

Hmadeh had a different position, and reported that back in October 2004, he has filed a personal lawsuit against an anonymous.

"The investigation has made breakthroughs and the STL will operate," said Hmadeh.

The only case found not to be related to assassination of Rafik Hariri was that of television journalist May Chidiac.
