AMSTERDAM - The prosecutor at the UN-backed tribunal seeking the killers of Lebanon's former prime minister Rafik Hariri asked Hezbollah's leader on Monday to offer material that could assist the investigation.

"The prosecutor welcomes Mr. Nasrallah's offer to provide the file that he stated he has on some elements of the investigation and requests the video material that was shown on television during his televised statement," Prosecutor of the Special Tribunal for Lebanon Daniel Bellemare said in a statement.

The prosecutor also asked for any other information and documents that would assist the tribunal.

Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah gave a televised speech on Saturday rebuking the UN tribunal. The prosecutor said in his statement he would not engage in a public debate in the media about the credibility of his investigation.

The confirmation of the indictments in the case by a pre-trial judge showed that the prosecutor's investigation relies on credible evidence, the prosecutor said, calling for all steps to be taken to bring the accused to justice.
