quotes Rafik Hariri Center Resident Fellow Faysal Itani
on the Special Tribunal for Lebanon's newly reissued mandate to try those accused of carrying out the 2005 assassination of ex-Prime Minister Rafik Hariri:
The line of reasoning is shared by Faysal Itani, a Lebanese fellow at the Atlantic Council’s Rafik Hariri Center for the Middle East, whose founding sponsor is the late statesman’s eldest son, Bahaa Hariri. The STL’s potential “to build a case against any members of the Syrian political security regime,” explains Itani, could produce
“one more tool in the arsenal” of existent “institutional momentum and presence” to prosecute “the regime on the level of international crimes atrocities”.
