STL prosecuter files an amended indictment


AFP reported that Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL ) Prosecutor Daniel Bellemare filed an amended indictment which includes “substantive new elements” with Pre-Trial Judge Fransen.

STL was created by a 2007 UN Security Council resolution to find and try the killers of former Lebanese PM Rafik Hariri, who was assassinated in a massive car bombing on the Beirut seafront on February 14, 2005 that also killed 22 other people.

The Special Tribunal for Lebanon is reportedly poised to indict Hezbollah members in the Hariri murder.

The Iranian and Syrian backed Hezbollah brought down PM Saad Hariri’s government on January 12 over the Special Tribunal for Lebanon’s ( STL) imminent indictment .
