UN: Hariri indictments will stay sealed for weeks

December 8, 2010 18:24

BEIRUT — A spokesman for the UN tribunal investigating the assassination of former Lebanese prime minister Rafik Hariri  said Wednesday it will be weeks or even several months before the details of expected indictments are made public.

The Netherlands-based tribunal investigating the 2005 killing of Hariri in a massive Beirut truck bombing is expected to issue its first indictments as soon as this month.

But a court spokesman, Crispin Thorold, said that the contents will remain confidential until confirmed by the pre-trial judge, which could take "at least six to 10 weeks" from the time the indictments are submitted.
