Hizbollah leader calls on Lebanese people to boycott Int''l Investigation Cmte

BEIRUT, Oct 28 (KUNA) -- Lebanese Hizbollah Chief Hassan Nasrallah urged on Thursday all Lebanese people and officials to boycott and not to cooperate with the International Investigation into the 2005 killing of Former Prime Minister Rafiq Al-Hariri and accused investigators of sending information to Israel.
"I call on every Lebanese official and every citizen to boycott these investigators and not to cooperate with them," Nasrallah said in a televised address through Al-Manar Television Channel.
The boycott call came after attempts by the international investigators to obtain medical information regarding relatives to Hizbollah members.
Nasrallah's remarks comes a day after two international investigators were kicked out of a gynecologist clinic in the southern suburbs of Beirut, Hizbollah's stronghold.
The group leader noted that information regarding the investigation goes beyond Al-Hariri case and has become a collection gathering mission.
Nasrallah added that all information by the investigation is being sent to Israel therefore must not be permitted under any political justification. (end) ayb.mb KUNA 290012 Oct 10NNNN
