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

Page Contents >

LSE Global Governance public lecture

Date: Tuesday 18 January 2011 
Time: 6.15-8pm
Venue:  Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House
Speaker: Omar Nashabe
Chair: Professor Susan Marks

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.

This event is free and open to all with no ticket required. Entry is on a first come, first served basis. For any queries contact Denise Mahon, d.mahon@lse.ac.uk, 020 7955 7434.
