Ashraf Rifi : "We should not wait for the investigation [into the Beirut blast]. We demand an inquiry commission that will be able to protect the investigating officer and the judges. Lebanese society succumbs to the will of Hizbullah. Hizbullah might kill any judge who concludes Hizbullah is responsible. Hizbullah might kill any officer and his family. In 2005, the free and sovereign society in Lebanon demanded that the international community set up an international tribunal. Today, we are no less qualified than others and we do not have inferior technical means. The investigator - whether it is an officer of the security forces or a judge - must be provided with protection and so should his family. Hizbullah is a terrorist organization. It is a murderous, criminal organization that kills its rivals. I witnessed how the martyr Wissam al-Hassan and the martyr Wissam Eid were killed, and we all know full well that Hizbullah is responsible for the killing of Rafik Al-Hariri, Wisam Al-Hassan, and Wisam Eid" External link

Today, we are no less qualified than others and we do not have inferior technical means. The investigator - whether it is an officer of the security forces or a judge - must be provided with protection and so should his family. Hizbullah is a terrorist organization. It is a murderous, criminal organization that kills its rivals.
