Lebanese government says they do not know where Hizballah murder suspet is, suspect says they do but will not make an arrest

Someone is lying, but since both sides are Islamic it is difficult to tell. 

I am inclined to go with the suspect, Hizballah has the upper hand in Lebanon and for all intent and purpose they control the government, and it would behoove them to leave the suspect alone. After all, he is one of them.

Suspect in Hariri killing says Beirut knows where he lives

Lebanese State Prosecutor Saeed Mirza on Saturday denied reports made by one of the four Hezbollah members indicted for the 2005 assassination of former Lebanese prime minister Rafik Hariri that the government in Beirut knows his location but is unable to arrest him, Lebanon’s Daily Star newspaper reported.
“The Lebanese authorities know where I live, and if they wanted to arrest me they would have done it a long time ago. Simply, they cannot,” the accused assassin said.
He gave an exclusive interview to Time magazine on Thursday in which he blamed Israel for the assassination, which took place in Beirut on February 14, 2005. He said that he would never turn himself in, nor would Hezbollah ever let him or his comrades go to trial.
The Hezbollah member, who refused to allow his name to be published despite proving his identity to the Time reporter, accused the Mossad of killing Hariri and forging evidence against him and his organization.
He also said that the UN backed Special Tribunal for Lebanon had no teeth and that even though the Lebanese government knew where he lived and worked it would not be able to arrest him because Hezbollah would not allow it.
There is the crux of the bisquit and the peg from which to hang your hat.
