Now Lebanon - Hamadeh: I was ‘comforted but disgusted’ by STL information - AUgust 12, 2011

March 14 MP Marwan Hamadeh said that he has mixed feelings following his meeting with a delegation from a UN-backed court investigating the murder of ex-Premier Rafik Hariri and 21 others.
“I was comforted due to the progress the investigation has made so far… but disgusted because we have discovered the direction in which some point their weapons. [We thought these weapons] were pointed at the enemy,” he told Al-Jumhuriya newspaper in an interview published on Friday.
Hamadeh did not reveal further information.
A Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL) delegation met on Thursday with former Defense Minister Elias al-Murr and March 14 MP Marwan Hamadeh at Prosecutor General Said Mirza’s office to address the assassination attempts against the two figures, the National News Agency reported.
A car bomb injured Hamadeh in October 2004, and Murr was targeted in a July 2005 bombing.
The STL indicted four members of the Iranian- Syrian-backed Hezbollah group in connection to the Hariri murder, but Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah ruled out their arrest.

Lebanese authorities informed the STL that none of the four accused has yet been detained.
