Indictment May Be Released before March 14 Rally


Informed circles predicted that the indictment in the investigation into the assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri may be released before the March 14 rally set for March 13.

They told the Kuwaiti al-Anbaa newspaper that it is most likely set to be released between March 8 and 10.

Should this happen, then it would serve as an excellent tool to rally supporters for next Sunday’s demonstration, which is driven by the March 14 camp’s mission to confront Hizbullah’s arms, they said.

The circles added that should Iran take any escalatory steps in the Arab gulf, then it will be confronted by pressure on Hizbullah through the Special Tribunal for Lebanon.

This means that Lebanon would have entered the difficult phase of international influence that is raging in the Middle East, they continued.
