The European Union supports the Special Tribunal for Lebanon
August 19, 2020
Today, the Special Tribunal for Lebanon pronounced the judgement in the Ayyash et al. case. The Special Tribunal for Lebanon was established by the United Nations Security Council in 2007 to try all those responsible for the terrorist bombing that killed former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri and 21 other people in February 2005.
The European Union reiterates the need to fight impunity and strengthen accountability and the rule of law at the international level.
The European Union has constantly supported the Special Tribunal for Lebanon, stressing the importance of Lebanon’s continued commitment to the full implementation of its international obligations, including United Nations Security Council resolution 1757 (2007), and call on all parties to continue to fully cooperate with the Special Tribunal.
