Trial for the four suspects in the Feb 14, 2005, attack at the Special Tribunal for Lebanon will begin at 10:30 a.m. Beirut time at the Antonio Cassese courtroom at the STL headquarters in Leidschendam, a suburb of The Hague.

The trial will begin with the prosecution’s opening statements, which are expected to continue until Friday, when the lawyers of the victims will speak before the trial chamber. The lawyers may request permission from the trial chamber to allow victims to speak before the court.

The court will adjourn for the weekend, and reopen Monday with opening statements by defense counsel for two of the suspects, Mustafa Badreddine and Hussein Oneissi.

The court may then proceed to hear testimony from the first witnesses or victims as early as Tuesday.

The trial chamber also has to decide whether to join the case of a fifth suspect, Hassan Merhi, with that of the first four suspects. It may choose to begin hearing testimony and evidence before deciding whether to join the cases, or it may choose to delay the testimony until after the decision is made.
