UNRIC had the pleasure to host on Thursday (6 June 2013) the first in Brussels press briefing regarding the Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL).

Three Senior STL officials, Daryl Mundis, Acting Registrar of the STL, Marten Youssef, Spokesperson of the STL and Christopher Roy Black, Legal Officer at the Pre-Trial Chamber, briefed the media on the latest developments regarding the Tribunal and the preparation for the approaching start of the trial.

The Special Tribunal for Lebanon is the first international tribunal to prosecute a crime of terrorism. Its primary mandate is to hold trials for the people accused of carrying out the attack of 14 February 2005 which killed 23 people, including the former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri, and injured many others.

Although the principal judicial organ of the United Nations is the International Court of Justice, the Organization also supports other judicial mechanisms, such as the ad hoc criminal tribunals and hybrid tribunals involving often mixed national and international composition and jurisdiction. They are set up in cooperation with national authorities under UN auspices and with mandates tailored to the specifics of each situation.
