Two local editors summoned by the Special Tribunal for Lebanon over charges of contempt and disrupting justice should go to the court to defend themselves against the accusations, Information Minister Ramzi Joreige said in Parliament Wednesday.Joreige, who is close to the Kataeb Party and is the former head of the Beirut Bar Association, said he would take the issue up in Cabinet.Both media outlets, which are considered pro-Hezbollah, have been critical of Joreige's stance on the summons, describing it as hazy.Sources told The Daily Star last week that Joreige had argued with Hezbollah ministers Hussein Hajj Hasan and Mohammad Fneish over the issue during a Cabinet meeting.
