March 14: Govt. Must Hold those Responsible for Ashrafiyeh Bldg


The March 14 General-Secretariat condoled on Wednesday the families of the victims of the Ashrafiyeh building collapse, urging the government to provide them with proper compensation.

It voiced in a statement after its weekly meeting its support for the Beirut MPs’ demand that the government “hold those responsible for the accident accountable for it.”

Addressing the Syrian crisis, it said that its possible repercussions on the Lebanese internal scene require all Lebanese forces to exert efforts in maintaining the peace.

It therefore demanded that Hizbullah, “which possesses arms outside the state’s authority, immediately reach a final solution to its weapons.”

“It should hand over its arms to the Lebanese state in accordance with the national reconciliation treaty that was approved by the Taif accord in 1989,” it stressed.

Regarding the visits to Lebanon last week by U.N. chief Ban Ki-moon and Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, the March 14 General-Secretariat noted: “It demonstrated that Lebanon is keen on taking part in the wave of change in the region and constructing a civil state that seeks to guarantee the rights of all of its citizens.”
