BEIRUT — Hizbullah Chief Hassan Nasrallah on Saturday accused the UN tribunal looking into the killing of a former Lebanese prime minister of protecting "false witnesses" who allegedly misled the investigation.

Sheik Nasrallah cited the case of four former Lebanese generals jailed for nearly four years in connection with the killing before being released for lack of evidence last year. He noted that the court agreed to let one general see his secret case file, but the prosecutor, Daniel Bellemare, appealed the decision.

"Why is Bellemare insisting on refusing to hand over even part of the files of the false witnesses?" Nasrallah asked. "Why is there insistence to protect false witnesses by Mr. Bellemare and the United Nations."
