Senior MP Stresses Unenforceability of Hariri Court's Verdict

"Given the unfair and non-judicial formation of the court, the verdict issued by the court can by no means be enforced," Head of the parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi told FNA on Saturday.

"Rafiq Hariri's court is completely politically-tainted and it has sentenced certain members of Hezbollah to impair Lebanon's stability," Boroujerdi said, adding, "The move was predictable."

He blasted the Zionist regime for attempts to impair the Lebanese unity, and said when Israel failed to prevent formation of the new Lebanese government it resorted to other measures, including the issuance of such a court ruling.

Syria's ambassador to Lebanon on Friday said the court implicating Hezbollah members in the 2005 murder of Hariri had "significantly lost credibility" after names were leaked to the press.

"The tribunal has significantly lost credibility because of these leaks, especially as Israeli media was the first to welcome the news and disclose the content of the indictment, days before it was announced," Ali Abdel Karim Ali told reporters after meeting Lebanese Prime Minister Najib Mikati.

The Netherlands-based Special Tribunal for Lebanon has issued arrest warrants for four members of Lebanon's powerful Hezbollah in connection with the Hariri assassination.

The whereabouts of the four are unknown, however.

Seyed Hassan Nasrallah, leader of Hezbollah, will announce his movement's position against the indictment in a televised address on Saturday.

Hezbollah has accused the tribunal of being a US-Israeli conspiracy and vowed to defend itself against any accusation in the Hariri murder.
