BEIRUT: The Special Tribunal for Lebanon said Monday the Trial Chamber would hold later this week a third pre-trial conference in preparation for the trial of the four suspects involved in the 2005 assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri.

The Jan. 9 conference will be public and begin at 10.30 a.m. (Central European Time), the court said in a statement on its website.

“The Trial Chamber may decide to go into closed session if confidential matters need to be discussed,” the statement added.

The hearing can be followed on the STL website with a 30-minute delay in Arabic, English and French.
