Qindil returns to Lebanon to face investigators of al-Hariri assassination
Lebanon, Politics, 8/31/2005
Former Lebanese parliamentarian Nasser Qindil retuned back from Syria to Lebanon to be brought before the UN committee for investigation in the assassination of the former Lebanese prime minister Rafiq al-Hariri.
He was summoned by the committee via the Lebanese internal security forces but he was not in Lebanon at that time.
After his return back to Lebanon, Qindil said "I will give all information I have with a spirit of responsibility, and I hope that I would have what is good for the investigation."
Qindil is one of five Lebanese officials summoned by the committee. The Lebanese security forces broke into the houses of three former leaders of the Lebanese security and escorted them to the headquarters of the UN for investigation in Beirut. They are the commander of the general security lt. gen. Jamil al-Sayyed, the commander of the internal security lt. gen. Ali al-Haj and the commander of the army intelligence maj. jen. Rimond Azar.
The commander of the Lebanese republican guard in the army Maj. Gen. Mustafa Hamdan was also summoned. He was brought before UN investigation committee under his own will.
The Lebanese prime minister Fouad Sinioura stressed that the Lebanese security forces implemented the summon operations demanded by the UN investigation committee to interrogate the five men as suspects.
Sinioura said in a press conference he held in Beirut that the investigation carried out by the investigation committee will decide the next steps to be taken against those officials.
After he stressed that he had met with the leaders of the security departments to make sure that they are carrying out set duties, Sinioura said, addressing the Lebanese people, that "everyone will be under the umbrella of the law, and that the world will be turned upside-down on the heads of criminals."
