There is an ongoing United Nations Special Tribunal preparing indictments related to the assassination, which is widely thought to have involved the Iran-backed terror group Hezbollah and its Syrian allies. The investigation was thrown into disarray last month when Al Akhbar, a Hezbollah-linked newspaper, published confidential details of 17 witnesses likely slated to testify in any murder trial over Hariri’s death. The details included names, passport pictures, dates of birth, and places of employment. The U.N. blasted the publication, noting that it put the witnesses’ lives at risk.
Now the names and photographs of more than 200 additional witnesses have been posted on the website of the pro-Hariri Al-Mustaqbal newspaper, which claims that the information was posted by a hacker who compromised the paper’s servers. Hezbollah websites promptly took the list and republished it. The Tower has viewed the information and can confirm the details of the story, if not the accuracy of the personal information.
But Europe is still not ready to call Hezbullah a terror organization.
Now that the Sunni and the Shia are killing each other we can expect the truth to surface. No longer is Israel a factor here. Exposing Assad is in the interest of the Muslim Brotherhood. To say that Hariri was killed by Zionists would not be in the interests of Sunni Islam when the man who is killing them is also the man who killed Hariri.
