BEIRUT: The Trial Chamber of the Special Tribunal for Lebanon has scheduled Jan. 16, 2014, as the date of the start of trials into the Ayyash et al. case, the court said in a statement Tuesday.

The trial will start at 9:30 CET, 10:30 Beirut time with opening statements to be delivered by the prosecutor, legal representatives of victims, as well as the opening statements of the defense.

“This decision has been made after consulting the parties to the case at the Trial Chamber’s last public hearing,” a statement from the STL said.

The STL is tasked with investigating the Feb. 14, 2005, bombing that killed former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri and set the stage for the end of Syria’s formal tutelage over Lebanon and a wave of political assassinations targeting anti-Syrian figures.

In 2011, it indicted Hezbollah members Salim Jamil Ayyash, Mustafa Amin Badreddine, Hussein Hassan Oneissi, and Assad Hassan Sabra.
