Justice Minister, Ashraf Rifi, congratulated in a message on Friday the Lebanese for the verdict issued against the criminal, Michel Samaha, sentencing him to 13 years in prison with hard labour.

“We must continue in order to reach justice. This path is long and will end with the judgment of all criminals who committed attacks and murders, and those who support Syrian-Iranian alliance since 2005 until today,” he said.

Minister Rifi said that “Samaha’s case was since the beginning our cause. We followed his trial and refused the pressure. We refused every attempt that aims to exonerate the criminal judicially, politically, and patriotically.”

“We made a difficult decision. We proved that we are committed to the victory of our people. We never hesitated to make decisions and to prosecute persons or parties involved in the Samaha plot, namely, officials in the Syrian regime,” he added.

Rifi pointed out that Lebanese people insisted to follow this file; they refused the first verdict of the military court and the decision to release the “terrorist Michel Samaha”

“We will never give up efforts to build a strong and just state whatever were the challenges and pressures,” he concluded.
