Gemayel in commemoration of his martyr son: Dossier still void after 9 years, Tribunal’s response is that it is Lebanon’s responsibility

November 21, 2015 (REFERRING TO THE NATIONAL NEWS AGENCY – LEBANON) Former President Amine Gemayel said Saturday that “nine years have passed since the assassination of Martyr Pierre Gemayel and the crime dossier is still void,” adding that “the International Tribunal’s response is that it is Lebanon’s responsibility.”

“This is unacceptable, for Pierre’s assassination dossier cannot remain pending in this manner,” said Gemayel, referring to the concerned sides.

Gemayel’s words came during a Mass service marking the 9th commemoration of his late son’s martyrdom, held at Saint Michael Church in Bikfaya in presence of prominent political figures.

In a word of tribute to the memory of Martyr Pierre, Gemayel said “We are all gathered here in remembrance of that young man with a great heart, a man who gave his whole life till the last breath so that Lebanon would remain a nation of dignity and libertyPierre Gemayel, with every passing day, we understand your love for the nation till martyrdom.”
