Report: STL Seeks Info on 2 Iranians who Entered Lebanon in 2004
The U.N.-backed Special Tribunal for Lebanon has recently asked the Lebanese interior ministry via the state prosecutor for information about “two Iranians who had first entered Lebanon in 2004 before leaving and returning several times in 2005 prior to ex-PM Rafik Hariri's assassination,” MTV reported on Monday.
MTV also reported that “after new evidence was added to it, the new indictment related to the connected cases may be issued before the end of public sessions.”
The connected cases are related to the 2004 attempt on MP Marwan Hamadeh's life and the 2005 bomb attacks against then-defense minister Elias Murr and ex-Lebanese Communist Party chief George Hawi.
The STL Prosecution has recently submitted a “Final Trial Brief” that explains the links between Hizbullah and the supposed assassination squads who murdered Hariri.
The report also draws attention to unusual meetings and phone calls between the senior Hizbullah and Syrian officials Wafiq Safa and Rustom Ghazaleh prior to the February 2005 attack.
