Bahaa Hariri: We call on the government to hold Hezbollah responsible for covering up the perpetrators of the assassination of Rafik Hariri

Bahaa Hariri issued the following statement:

The decision of the Appeals Chamber to rescind the verdict of acquitting and convicting the accused, Hassan Habib Merhi and Hussein Hassan Oneissi, who are members of the Hezbollah militia, confirms once again that the first suspect in the assassination of the late Prime Minister Rafik Hariri is this party, its leadership and its elements. Accordingly, we call on the Lebanese state to prosecute the criminals and hold Hezbollah responsible for covering up the perpetrators of this terrorist crime.

As we affirm that we will no longer condone holding the perpetrators accountable, we call on the authority in Lebanon not to disregard the court’s decision and to work quickly to demand that the party hand over the accused to justice.
