March 23, 2010 - Now Lebanon - STL investigation team re-examines crime scene of Hariri’s assassination

An unnamed military source told AFP on Tuesday that an investigative team dispatched by the Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL) re-examined the crime scene of the 2005 murder of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri using advanced technology, including three-dimensional photography.

Spokesperson for the STL prosecutor Radhia Achouri told AFP from the Hague that the Office of the Prosecutor will not give any details on the investigative team’s mission.

Achouri noted that the investigative team is stationed in Lebanon. “We operate mainly in Lebanon, since the victims and our partners in the investigation are Lebanese,” she said.

She also said that refraining from disclosing details also aims at not providing the criminals, who are still at large, with sensitive information as well as to preserve the transparency of the investigations.
