Wissam Eid was laid to rest after his assassination is peaceful, a far cry from the emotional turbulence that his killing still evokes at home.His father Mahmoud's voice rises and falls. It rises in anger particularly as he questions why his son's case is not being handled by the Special Tribunal for Lebanon, the court investigating the killing of Lebanon's former charismatic premier. It falls as he ponders justice denied, despairing over the fact that he may never know who killed his son, a 31-year-old officer of the Internal Security Forces who was instrumental in analyzing the telecommunications data that would eventually lead to indictments and arrest warrants by the Hague-based court. The network of phones was eventually identified as belonging to five Hezbollah suspects who have been indicted by the court.The prosecution's indictment relies primarily on telecommunications evidence that linked such networks of phones used in the surveillance of Hariri prior to the attack, to personal phones in the same vicinity that belonged to the alleged suspects in the case, a technique that is known as co-location.
