Lebanese Prime Minister Sa'ad Hariri will ask the UN tribunal probing the assassination of his father Saad Hariri to stop its investigation and leave the country, Lebanese newspaper Al-Diyar reported on Wednesday.

Tension over the tribunal has paralyzed Lebanon in recent weeks amid speculation prosecutor Daniel Bellemare will indict members of Hizbullah for the 2005 assassination.

Earlier this month, Special Tribunal for Lebanon registrar Herman von Hebel said the case would see its first indictment very soon.

The indictment could remain sealed even after it is confirmed, if the court believes that would make arresting suspects easier, Von Hebel said.
