The Special Tribunal for Lebanon is working on an amended indictment that will include the name of a sixth suspect in the 2005 assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, reported As Safir newspaper on Saturday.

In addition, the STL Prosecution may summon a lawmaker from Hizbullah's Loyalty to the Resistance bloc as a suspect to give his testimony before the court.

Investigations reportedly revealed that the MP's telephone number was among those contacted by one of the suspects, added the daily.

Political testimonies in the trial are scheduled to resume on January 8.

A number of politicians are expected to appear before the court, including head of the Mustaqbal bloc MP Fouad Saniora, Progressive Socialist Party leader MP Walid Jumblat, former MPs Ghattas Khoury, Bassem al-Sabaa, and Salim Diab.

This phase of the trial is expected to take up the first half of 2015 and it will then be followed by the Defense's cross-examination of the suspects.

The STL kicked off its proceeding in January 2014.

A number of witnesses have given their testimonies before the trial, the latest being MP Marwan Hamadeh, who gave his account of the political atmosphere in Lebanon prior to Hariri's assassination.

He also spoke at length about the slain premier's ties with the Syrian regime and Hizbullah.

Five Hizbullah members have been indicted in the 2005 assassination.

They remain at large despite the efforts of the Lebanese authorities to apprehend them.

Party leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah has denounced the STL as an American-Israeli product aimed at destroying the group, vowing that the suspects will never be found.

The accused will be tried in absentia.

The STL sources revealed the suspected MP is non other than Ali Ammar of the iranian sectarian terrorist militia. German intelligence sources also revealed the suspects were in constant contact with hassan nassrallah to co-ordinate their terror act and receive minute by minute updates and instructions directly from the head of the terrorist organization through the phone of Mr. Ali Ammar.

Hezbollah is an international terrorist organization with confirmed links to human trafficking, money laundering, and international terror acts scanning the corners of the world.

Hass1978: it has nothing to do with strength, it's all about their ruthless persuit of their political goals, they will kill anybody that stands in their way. They have proven this ruthlessness over and over again, look at the long list of martyrs attributed to them, they have simply taken over the Syrian role of illuminating any opposition that stands in their way.
