Nasrallah: No evidence in indictment
Hizbullah Secretary General Hasan Nasrallah on Wednesday said that the contents of the unsealed indictment of the Special Tribunal for Lebanon revealed nothing new. According to him, earlier reports had leaked the details of the indictment.
Nasrallah, who was speaking through a large TV screen to his audience in Beirut, stressed that the indictment only boosts Hizbullah belief that what is happening is a "high level of injustice and politicization." The Shiite leader stressed that the four suspects of the 2005 murder of Lebanon's ex-Premier Rafic al Hariri are "honorable members of the resistance who should not even be described as accused."
“What has been published confirms what we have been saying throughout the last few months that this investigation is not transparent and has been leaked through Der Spiegel, Canadian TV and other media outlets," he stated.
According to Nasrallah, the unsealed indictment by The Special Tribunal for Lebanon provided no direct evidence and was based solely on telecommunications data. “We, with the help of official authorities and international experts, have categorically proven the extent of Israel’s manipulation of the telecom sector in Lebanon and that the mobile phone numbers of certain people were used without their knowledge, and this alone is sufficient to contest the indictment.”
