Hizbullah to Counter Indictment by Issuing its Own Report
Hizbullah has tasked a technical team with drafting a report that challenges the international tribunal’s indictment and the circumstantial evidence of telecommunications data that implicated four of the party’s members in ex-Premier Rafik Hariri’s murder, a Loyalty to the Resistance bloc MP said.
The lawmaker told As Safir daily published Saturday that Hizbullah would hold a press conference after drafting the report to present its findings to the public opinion and unveil new facts about Israeli manipulation of telecom data.
Meanwhile, al-Joumhouria newspaper reported that Hizbullah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah will unveil new documents allegedly linking foreign intelligence agencies to several assassination attacks in Lebanon.
Hizbullah sources told the newspaper that the party has recordings and copies of correspondence between the Central Intelligence Agency and several other spy agencies of moderate countries.
The data implicates the involvement of one of the agencies in several assassinations carried out in Lebanon in the past few years, the sources said.
They told al-Joumhouria that Russian President Dmitry Medvedev handed over the documents to his Syrian counterpart Bashar Assad after the Russian army found them during a raid on an apartment in Georgia used as a base by the CIA in 2006.
