Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil asked Cabinet Friday to petition the Special Tribunal for Lebanon to review the summons issued against Lebanese journalists Ibrahim al-Amin and Karma al-Khayyat.Hezbollah Ministers Hussein Hajj Hasan and Mohammad Fneish raised this issue at a recent Cabinet meeting.In his summons, Judge David Baragwanath says that there was evidence suggesting that Al-Jadeed and Al-Akhbar were aware that publishing confidential information about alleged witnesses would interfere with the tribunal's administration of justice. Still, many have questioned whether the tribunal has overstepped its mandate by deciding to prosecute the journalists. The case against Amin and Khayyat, he added, would not be resolved overnight.
