BEIRUT: The Special Tribunal for Lebanon Wednesday named Marianne El-Hajj as acting spokeswoman until the court recruits a replacement.

On its Twitter feed, the STL said resigned “spokesperson Marten Youssef would continue to speak to the press for the rest of this month.”

“Marianne El Hajj will then be the acting spokesperson until a replacement for Youssef is recruited.”

Youssef announced his resignation Tuesday from the STL for “personal reasons” after three years and half of working as the U.N.-backed court’s spokesperson.

The court said the vacant position would be advertised soon.
