BEIRUT: The Special Tribunal for Lebanon Tuesday officially joined the case of an alleged Hezbollah member accused of complicity in the 2005 assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri with the trial of four other suspects.

The STL Trial Chamber cited a lack of objections from the Defense Council to the decision to join the case of Hassan Merhi to the trial of the four other Hezbollah suspects - Mustafa Badreddine, Hussein Oneissi, Salim Ayyash and Assad Sabra – indicted in the Feb. 14, 2005 attack.

The Defense, however, did urge that the same benefits of independent trials be afforded to the merger of the cases, including a pre-Trial hearing.
