The Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL): Prerequisites for Injustice?

Download: Audio

Editor's note: Unfortunately the first few minutes of the lecture are missing from the podcast.

Speaker(s): Omar Nashabe
Chair: Professor Susan Marks

Recorded on 18 January 2011 in Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House.

The indictment of the STL in the Hariri assassination case is expected to be filed soon. However there are suspicions that the judicial process has been politically manipulated. This lecture will attempt to show that there have been serious flaws in the STL as an international mechanism for achieving justice. Omar Nashabe received a PhD in Criminal Justice; he serves as editor of the justice section of al-Akhbar newspaper and advisor on human rights and prisons to the Lebanese government. In 2007 he published The Roumieh Prison, if it could speak [in Arabic] with Dar as-Saqi, Beirut/London.
