The editor-in-chief of Lebanon's Al-Akhbar newspaper will not appear at Tuesday's hearing for contempt before the Special Tribunal for Lebanon, after the court apparently failed to address the newspaper's request to postpone the session, in the latest twist in the controversial case against two Lebanese media outlets.The issues include whether STL staff are immune from being summoned as witnesses in the case, whether the contempt charges contravene Lebanese laws, and what criminal codes the STL relied on to accuse the journalists of contempt.Amin accused the STL of suppressing freedom of the press, saying the contempt charges go against human rights laws.
