New Bristol Meeting Under Slogan of ‘Justice for Stability’
Former ministers, MPs and around 300 personalities will attend a legal conference organized by the March 14 forces next week under the slogan of “Justice for Stability.”
March 14-led opposition sources told An Nahar daily that the meeting, which will be held at the Bristol hotel in Beirut on Tuesday evening, will stress the need to remain committed to the international tribunal and continue funding it.
The organizers of the conference will invite Justice Minister Shakib Qortbawi and General Prosecutor Saeed Mirza to implement the cooperation agreement signed with the Special Tribunal for Lebanon and execute the arrest warrants issued against four suspects in ex-Premier Rafik Hariri’s Feb. 2005 assassination case.
According to the sources, the organizers will also urge the Beirut and Tripoli Bar Associations to take a “historic stance to safeguard justice and the truth.”
At the end of the meeting, one of the organizers will read a message urging U.N. chief Ban Ki-moon to consolidate and protect the court. The message includes a statement that says “security stability cannot spread in Lebanon without justice and without putting the Lebanese in front of two choices: justice or chaos because only justice guarantees stability.”
