Gemayel: I Have Some Information Relating the Assassination of my Son Pierre

The head of the Lebanese Phalange Party Amin Gemayel said," I have some information relating the assassination of my son Pierre Gemayel."

Following his meeting with Bishop Elias Audi, Gemayel stressed "The truth about Pierre's assassination benefits the country more than the family, despite the fact that it heals the feelings of his wife and mother."

Gemayel went on to consider the "discovery regarding the link between the terrorist group with Pierre's assassination will never bring him back. However, through their work, the security apparatus has provided citizens now with greater trust."

He hoped that the internal situation in the country would improve and the process of reconciliation would stem from patriotic basis. Gemayel Hoped that the Christian reconciliation won't be fragile.

The Phalange leader denied the intention of the March 14 Forces for holding any press conference saying," we have been meeting for sometime and we do discuss matters. However, what interests us is greater than our movement; it is the whole country."

The daily An-Nahar on Tuesday said that investigations have revealed those arrested in connection with the terrorist Jawhar network that had previously targeted the army, is also implicated in the assassination of former Minister of Industry Pierre Gemayel on 21 November 2006.
