BEIRUT: The president of the Special Tribunal for Lebanon assigned Judge Nicola Lettieri to the Trial Chamber Wednesday, following his appointment last week by the U.N. secretary-general as the new international alternate judge.

Lettieri is awaiting the final approval from the Italian authorities before assuming his full-time duties at the STL, according to a statement issued by the tribunal.

Lettieri, who obtained a master’s degree from the University of Naples in 1981, has extensive legal experience in the international and domestic arenas. He became an advocate in 1985 before assuming his role as junior magistrate at the Court of Naples in 1986. In the period from 1987 until 2004, Lettieri was deputy prosecutor at the Court of Naples, specializing in areas such as economic crimes, corruption and international terrorism.

Since 2010, Lettieri has served as deputy attorney general at the Supreme Court of Cassation in Italy. He has held the posts of legal expert for the Italian prime minister in international legal affairs since 2011 and ad hoc judge at the European Court of Human Rights since 2010.
