Laval, Canada - February 03, 2003

UN resolution needed

RCPL requests that the Canadian government pass a resolution similar to the one passed by the European Parliament on January 24, 2003. The resolution calls on the Lebanese authorities to:

-

determine the fate of some 17,000 missing Lebanese in a serious, non-biased investigation

-

arrange for the withdrawal of the Syrian army from Lebanon, conforming to UNSC resolution 520 and Taef agreement

The resolution also expressed concerns over the closure of the MTV station and the harassment of Lebanese journalists who criticize the regime. 

The Canadian government is asked to adopt a similar resolution and to propose such a resolution to the United Nations.
