The Daily Star - STL told about potential for errors in key data, July 22, 2015

The Special Tribunal for Lebanon heard about the potential for errors in the prosecution’s key call sequence tables Tuesday.

Analysts who work with the office of the prosecution Kei Kamei and Andrew Donaldson both testified Tuesday and were both questioned extensively about the process by which call sequence tables are reviewed for errors.

The call sequence tables, which indicate the calls and SMS messages made to and from a certain phone over a given period of time, are crucial to the prosecution’s case.

The prosecution has indicated it will attempt to prove through phone records that five Hezbollah members were key orchestrators of the conspiracy to kill former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri. But Kamei acknowledged that there “could have errors.”

She said, however, that all the errors she had personally discovered were formatting issues rather than substantive ones. Donaldson said that he was very confident that there were no errors in the call sequence tables, knowing that “ultimately if the call sequence table is slightly wrong it is no good.”
