توجه الامين العام لحزب الله السيد نصرالله الى الضباط بالتهنئة على اطلاق السراح والعودة الى الحرية، معتبرا أن قرار إطلاق سراحهم الذي جرى من قبل قاضي الإجراءات في المحكمة الدولية دليل قاطع على أن لجنة التحقيق خلال عملها في كل المرحلة السابقة كانت مسيسة وغير عادلة ولا تخضع للمعايير الدولية و أن الاحتجاز كان احتجاز سياسي. لافتا الى انه كان على ميليس أو من أتى بعده أن يطلق سراح الضباط وليس الإحتفاظ بهم دون أي تحقيق ومع سقوط الشهود الكاذبين، مشيرا الى انه لم يطلق سراحهم لأن اطلاق سراحهم في ذلك الوقت المبكر تداعيات كبيرة، فأبقيوا في السجون لأسباب سياسية بحتة وكان هنالك من يحمي هذا الإعتقال السياسي. السيد نصر الله رأى انه لو كانت لجنة التحقيق تعمل بشكل قانون وبعيدا عن التسييس وعن الدول الداعمة لـ14 آذار كان يجب أن يخرج الضباط الأربعة عندما تبين أن الشاهد زهير الصديق كذاب وليس بعد 4 سنوات.
السيد نصر الله اشار الى انه بعد طول مدة الإعتقال، وسقوط الشهادات المزيفة أصبح الأمر يفوق الفضيحة القضائية والسياسية فلم يكن هنالك إمكانية لإستمرار اعتقال الضباط، فما جرى هو إنتهاء الفضيحة. معتبرا أن تشكيل المحكمة يفرض عليها البت بمصير الموقوفين وإلا تصبح امام موقع إدانة منذ اليوم الأول. والمح سماحته الى وجود ثلاثة شخصيات لبلمار: الأول رئيس لجنة التحقيق وهو الشريك في الظلم الذي لحق بالضباط، والثاني بلمار الذي لم يمانع إطلاق سراح الضباط، أما الثالث لا نعرف عنه أي شيء، هل سيكون بلمار الأول أو بلمار الثاني؟
السيد نصرالله تساءل كيف سيتصرف المحققون الدوليون في المرحلة المقبلة وأي مسارات سيسلكون وكيف سيتصرفون؟ أبشكل علمي؟ أو سترتكب الأخطاء عينها؟ هل ستوجه إتهامات لأشخاص جدد إستنادا لشهادات كاذبة أو سيتم التدقيق بالدليل والحجة بشكل علمي؟. مؤكدا ان لا حكم على المرحلة المقبلة مسبقا ولكن يجب أن يثبت المسؤولون الدوليون أنهم نزيهون وهم قادرون على إثبات ذلك أو عكس ذلك. لافتا الى ان من ضلل التحقيق 4 سنوات يمكنه أن يضلل التحقيق لـ 100 سنة، المعلومات تؤكد أن الآذان والأبواب مفتوحة أمام شهداء الزور وهذه الأسئلة ليست للإدانة بل طبيعية ومشروعة
Sayyed Nasrallah: Martyr Hariri’s case and STL must be reviewd
Hezbollah Secretary General stressed in a televised speech on Al-Manar TV that “we should make a new review of the assassination case of former Prime Minister martyr Rafik Hariri and the Special Tribunal for Lebanon.”
His eminence began his speech by congratulating all workers in Lebanon and the world on Labor Day. “I ask Almighty Allah that this occasion would see one day the beginning of equity that would solve their problems and make their just demands heard.”
Sayyed Nasrallah then moved to politics and said that what had been presented at the dialogue table in Lebanon over Israeli maneuvers needs more time to tackle than we have today. “I will discuss this matter in detail sometime later, however I will address the issues of the crisis with Egypt and the matter of the four generals.”
THE CRISIS WITH EGYPT
“A wide campaign was waged since the crisis between Hezbollah and Egypt emerged and it is still ongoing. The Egyptian regime helped in this campaign alongside others in the Arab world. At that time I commented on the matter and we did not go into a political and a media confrontation, therefore what we witness today is a unilateral media war. Their allegations are mere allegations, because if they had facts to rely on, they would not have needed insults, particularly when they said that this was a juridical matter. If this was the case, why did they need all this effort? I have read a number of opinion polls, and I know that they have not succeeded in attaining their aims. What did the Egyptian regime achieve from its campaign on Hezbollah? Nothing. Did it achieve any of its presumed objectives? Did the Egyptian regime convince the Egyptian people and Arab peoples in the image of the resistance it sought to present? They were not convincing neither to the Egyptian people nor to Arabs.”
“During the war on Gaza, our stance was very normal. I heard the Egyptian President speaking and warning of Egypt’s anger. We had hoped to see Egypt’s anger when thousands of Palestinians in Gaza were getting killed when the Strip was on its own. We did not form an organization in Egypt and we did not target Egypt. We do not interfere in Egyptian affairs. We only work to support our Palestinian brothers.
True that many leaders have called for a calm settlement of the issue and we are following this up through legal channels. Of course there exists sides that we have confidence in to handle the issue. I thank all those who bravely defended us, particularly those inside Egypt who were harmed because of their support to the resistance. I tell Egyptian officials that going on with your campaign will be to no avail. You have made us a very big favor that will reveal itself soon, and we thank you for that.”
“(UN Secretary General) Ban Ki-Moon even sent his envoy Terej Roed Larsen to Egypt to discuss the matter. I find it very weird how Ban did not use the same words that he used against Hezbollah, when Israeli was bombing Gaza with internationally banned weapons and committing genocide against Palestinians. Larsen had raised the issue of the telecommunication network in Lebanon only to destabilize the situation and push the United Nations into a confrontation with Hezbollah and the resistance in the region. The US State Department relabeled Hezbollah as a terror organization. There is a global campaign aiming at labeling Hezbollah as a mafia and a group of gangster and this is not true. These campaigns have been waged against us because we reject the zionist project, we refuse to acknowledge Israel and we do no accept US hegemony; this is our crime. I tell those behind the Egyptian and global campaigns that you are waiting your money because this will not damage our will and the July 2006 war is a good example for you.”
THE FOUR GENERALS
“I would like to congratulate the four Generals and their families on their release and return to freedom. We are talking about the most dangerous period in Lebanon’s modern history. We have to make a new review of the assassination case of martyr Rafiq Hariri and the Tribunal so as to serve this cause. After the assassination of martyr Hariri in 2005, the Lebanese reached consensus on condemning the crime, knowing the truth and launching a serious unremitting investigation to uncover the truth and punish the culprits. If we had managed to preserve this consensus, we would have done this cause a great favor. However, the Lebanese differed on the political accusation. A political party in Lebanon had rushed since the first moments after the assassination to accuse Syria and its allies and the then Lebanese authority. They Judged, convicted and punished and then asked the kind Lebanese people to vote for them in elections to punish Hariri’s killers. They founded all of their political project and relations on this accusation that could have led to civil war in Lebanon, even a regional war. This was prevented when Syrian President Bachar Assad decided to pull out Syrian forces from Lebanon. Hence, we have to consider all assumptions that point to sides that might be behind the assassination, because political accusations might lead the country to undesired consequences.”
