Lebanon's Jreissati urges STL president to speed up trials
(MENAFN) Lebanese Justice Minister Salim Jreissati called on the Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL) to accelerate its work in order to reach the truth about former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri's assassination, Al-Sharq Al-Awsat.
Jreissati met on Tuesday with the STL president, Ivana Hrdlickova, who was heading a judicial and administrative delegation from the tribunal.
According to available information, STL Prosecutor Norman Farrell filed a new indictment for the crimes against Georges Hawi, Marwan Hamadeh and Elias al-Murr. Farrell reportedly accused new Hezbollah officials, other than the five members of the party, who are being tried in absentia for the assassination of Hariri.
"Time is gold and the Tribunal has got to move forward; its harmonious work must prevail; which does not seem imminent," Jreissati said following the meeting.
