Lebanon president says cabinet okay of UN court plan void

BEIRUT (AFP) - Lebanon's pro-Syrian President Emile Lahoud has rejected as null and void the pro-Western government's approval of a UN plan for an international court to try the murder of ex-premier Rafiq Hariri.
Pro-Western? so he'd rather it be pro-Syrian?

"The cabinet's approval of the plans for the establishment of the court are not binding on the Lebanese state because the decision was taken by an illegitimate body in breach of the constitution," Lahoud said in a letter to UN chief Kofi Annan on Tuesday.

It's not like they're voting for a nuclear bomb, they're voting on the decision for an international tribunal to condemn those who have assassinated Rafic Hariri. So Lahoud and the Shii'a ministers are fighting so hard against this decision?

Isn't it just TOO obvious?
