Investigations into al-Hariri assassination cause fears in many
Lebanon, Politics, 8/31/2005
The declaration made by the Lebanese prime minister Foaud Sinioura came following the statement issued by the minister of justice which said that the independent UN investigation committee asked for approval to seek the help of the Internal Security forces to implement acts of breaking-in and inspection of houses and interrogating former Lebanese officials and that it had got the consent for.
Chairman of the UN investigation committee in charge of investigating in the assassination of Hariri, prosecutor Detlev Mehlis, said he held talks with Sinioura and with the minister of justice Charlez Rizk.
The Lebanese ministry of justice said that Mehlis vowed to brief the attorney general with the results of investigations with the former Lebanese officials and evidence provided against them, and the proposal of the committee concerning them, leaving the Lebanese judiciary to take the appropriate action.
The acts of arrest came in atmospheres of tension in Lebanon after the UN investigation committee notified the Lebanese security authorities that there is a list, including names of Lebanese figures, being vulnerable for assassination, and this resulted in that many of those figures left Lebanon.
To this effect, a Lebanese government source spoke of the postponement of the visits of each the higher representative for the foreign policy at the European Union Javier Solana and Terry Rod Larsen, the special representative for the UN secretary general, to Beirut on Tuesday without defining reasons for that.
