NNA - In a statement issued Wednesday by MP Boutros Harb marking the 13th commemoration of Martyr PM Rafic Hariri's assassination, he said, "I visited Lebanon's great Patriarch, Nasrallah Butros Sfeir, to check on his health and prayed with him that the spirit of the Cedar Revolution and its principles, embodied on February 14 and consolidated through the movement of March 14 that liberated Lebanon, would never wither and die...and so that today's commemoration would not turn into mourning and tears on a glorious page in the history of a free and independent Lebanon...after the lovers of freedom got dispersed in search of political, partisan and sectarian interests, and after it failed to achieve its goals of building a state of law and right, and after personal interests took the place of principles..."


"On the commemoration of Martyr PM Rafic Hariri's assassination, I did not find any better way to express my feelings of returning to the source of the Cedar Revolution and the patron of the Qornet Shehwan Gathering, which triggered the spark of liberation and restored sovereignty to the country away from Syrian hegemony," Harb added.


"God's mercy be upon the soul of Rafic Hariri," he concluded.
