The [UN]Special Tribunal for Lebanon has issued indictments against four senior Hezbullah members in the 2005 murder of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik al-Hariri.Will Hezbollah led government allow these prosecutions to go through?:
“I will now examine the indictment and the warrants to take the appropriate measures,” [State Prosecutor Saeed] Mirza told reporters following a meeting with a three-member delegation from the Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL).
A judicial source told The Daily Star that the indictment identified the suspects as Mustafa Badreddine[Badreddine is cousin and a brother-in-law of slain Hezbollah terrorist Imad Mughniyeh..ed], Salim al-Ayyash, Hasan Aineysseh and Asad Sabra.
Also Thursday, Lebanon's interior minister was quoted as saying that the indictments are "a big deal."Hell, those four probably have their bags packed and on their way to Iran.
“Why the big deal? It’s just an indictment and not a final verdict. So why all this hubbub?” Lebanese Interior Minister Marwan Charbel asked during a Voice of Lebanon interview, according to The Daily Star.
