Tensions ran high during Thursday's Cabinet session as Justice Minister Ashraf Rifi and Minister of State Mohammad Fneish clashed over Rifi's recent accusations that Hezbollah was guilty of tax evasion and money laundering.Rifi told journalists that Hezbollah was establishing a statelet inside Lebanon, engaging in money-related corruption and protecting the murderers of late Prime Minister Rafik Hariri.The Special Tribunal for Lebanon, which is responsible for identifying and sentencing those behind the 2005 assassination of Hariri, has indicted five Hezbollah members. The Future Movement and Hezbollah had agreed Wednesday during their latest dialogue session to bury recent tensions and restore the momentum of previous meeting.
