The Daily Star (Lebanon) - - LEBANON -

A hear­ing has been sched­uled for Oct. 11, 2017, in which the STL Ap­peals Cham­ber will pro­vide the pros­e­cu­tor and head of the de­fense of­fice with the op­por­tu­nity to orally sub­mit le­gal ques­tions raised by Pre-Trial Judge Peter Fransen re­gard­ing a fresh indictment, ac­cord­ing to a Spe­cial Tri­bunal for Le­banon me­dia re­lease. Due to the con­fi­den­tial na­ture of the indictment, it has yet to be con­firmed how many in­di­vid­u­als have been newly in­dicted, or which case the indictment refers to. While the STL has in­ves­ti­gated the as­sas­si­na­tion of for­mer Prime Min­is­ter Rafik Hariri, it is also in­ves­ti­gat­ing the re­lated as­sas­si­na­tion of Ge­orge Hawi and as­sas­si­na­tion at­tempts against Mar­wan Ha­madeh and Elias Murr.
