A police official with the explosives division described Jamea Jamea, Syria's former strongman in Lebanon, as a "ruler" with whom he had to maintain good relations, in the first allusion during the Special Tribunal for Lebanon trial to Syria's dominance at the time of the Hariri assassination.The ISF official was in charge of a team of explosives experts and was required to inform the top Syrian general of developments related to the Feb. 14, 2005, attack that killed former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri and 21 others. General Jamea was killed in October last year during combat with rebels in Syria. Some suspect him of complicity in the assassinations of Hariri as well as former President-elect Rene Mouawad in 1989 . Defense lawyers maintain, however, that the attack was likely an underground explosion.
