A journalist who ignored a court order to take down videos that risked exposing the identities of witnesses in the case of Lebanese prime minister Rafik al-Hariri's murder should serve a year in prison, a Hague prosecutor said on Monday.

Television reporter Karma al-Khayat had shown "no remorse or regret," and should also pay a 100,000-euro ($112,000) fine, prosecutor Slobodan Zecevic told a sentencing hearing at the Special Tribunal for Lebanon on Monday.Khayat has described her conviction for contempt of court, as an attack on the free press. A judge was due to sentence her later on Monday.
