Special Tribunal for Lebanon

The tribunal established by the United Nations to try the perpetrators of a car bomb blast that killed former Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri of Lebanon has appointed its main officials and adopted rules of procedures and evidence, according to the President of the Special Tribunal for Lebanon, Antonio Cassese of Italy.  He was also the first president of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY).  The Special Tribunal for Lebanon (like the ICTY) is located in the Hague, a city that is sometimes called "the world's courthouse."
