Lawyers also lambasted prosecutors before the Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL) for delays in handing over evidence they needed for the trial in absentia of four Hizbullah members accused of involvement with the massive bombing. “The defence respectfully requests… that the judge order the Lebanese government to search for, identify and provide the material sought,” said lawyers for Assad Sabra, one of the accused in a court document. Beirut should “comply with the judge’s order no more than four weeks” after the ruling, Sabra’s lawyers added in the paper, made public by the court based in the leafy suburb of Leidschendam just outside The Hague.
