BEIRUT: The court prosecuting the alleged killers of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri announced Monday that it received the annual Lebanese contribution to its budget.

The Special Tribunal for Lebanon said the government had transferred 29,386,609 Euros, which is 49 percent of the court’s budget for 2013.

“I thank the Lebanese government for respecting once again Lebanon’s international obligation to fund the tribunal,” STL Registrar Daryl Mundis said in a statement.

The court is scheduled to start the trial of four Hezbollah suspects accused of complicity in the bombing that killed Hariri and 21 others. The funding of the STL is a controversial issue since Hezbollah and its allies in Lebanon strongly oppose the U.N.-backed tribunal.
