Oghassabian: False Witnesses Aim at Torpedoing STL

State Minister Jean Oghassabian on Monday accused the Hizbullah-led March 8 coalition of crippling the Government.

"We always call for separation between everything related to the International Tribunal and the political and day-to-day life of citizens," Oghassabian told LBC television station.

"Paralyzing people's needs is not acceptable, especially as the requirements of the current stage necessitate the Government to meet and address these issues," he said.

Oghassabian also believed that the false witnesses' issue aims at torpedoing the Special Tribunal for Lebanon "as long as no victim has come forward to complain."

He stressed that the false witnesses' issue is "purely political."
