The Prime Minister of Lebanon commented on the verdict of the Tribunal in the Hague for the Hariri case

The final verdict of the special Tribunal in the Hague for the murder of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri may be used by some forces as a pretext to incite strife in Lebanon, said Tuesday the Prime Minister of Lebanon Hassan Diyab at the meeting of the Supreme Council for national security.

The final verdict of spectrasoul for the murder of Hariri, who was killed in a suicide attack in Beirut on 14 February 2005, must be declared on 7 August.

"We must be ready to respond to the final verdict on the murder of Rafik Hariri, which will be delivered on 7 Aug. According to our data, there is a direct link to senior responsible persons from the case. This may trigger an attempt to catch fish in muddy water some. Obstruction of inciting civil strife is of paramount importance. There should be no breaks in the fight with the internecine project," said Diyab.

A special Tribunal in the Hague was established in 2007 by decision of the UN Security Council. The Tribunal's work in Lebanon remains a controversial issue. The son of the slain Prime Minister, former Prime Minister Saad Hariri said Tuesday that on 7 August for his Sunni supporters of the party "Mustaqbal" will be the day "justice in the name of Lebanon," when will announce the names of the criminals. On the other hand a number of Lebanese politicians believe the investigation into the murder of Hariri Sr. politicized and directed against Shiite movement "Hezbollah". Previously, the main defendant in the case was a member of the Shiite movement - Amin badreddin, who was killed in the fighting in Syria.
