August 23, 2010 - Now Lebanon - STL might postpone indictment after Hezbollah’s alleged evidence, says source

An anonymous source told Syrian newspaper Al-Watan in an interview published on Monday that Hezbollah’s material on the 2005 assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri might postpone the Special Tribunal for Lebanon’s (STL) indictment, which was expected to be issued in September.

On August 9, Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah showed video footage and the confession of an alleged spy, which he said implicate Israel in the Rafik Hariri murder.

The source told Al-Watan that STL Prosecutor General Daniel Bellemare and his team are dealing seriously with Hezbollah’s documents, adding that the examination of the material requires about two months.
