A former Lebanese minister Wiam Wahab accuses Saudi Arabia of involvment in the assassination of former Lebanese prime minister Rafik al- Hariri.
The ex-official said in an interview with O-TV Thursday, "if the investigation of the crime is properly directed it will reveal Saudi Arabia's involvement in the killing of al-Hariri."
'The problem is not Saudi's funding al- Hariri's assassination, because this country has invested more in creating sabotage in Lebanon, he added.
The problem is with the Canadian judge Daniel Bellemare who has not had enough evidence for the prosecution, and has gone to the wrong location for investigation, Wahab said.
Canadian judge Daniel Bellemare, who heads the UN team investigating political violence, is preparing his second report, which is expected to be decisive.
In his first report to the Security Council, Bellemare said the commission believed Hariri's killing and the other assassinations and assassination bids were "politically motivated."
The UN had sent a letter to the Lebanese government calling on it to inform Lebanese judges who had been chosen as members of the tribunal of the need to submit their resignation from the Lebanese judiciary and settle their outstanding indemnities.
