The controversial contempt case against Al-Jadeed TV and journalist Karma al-Khayat is slated to begin Thursday at the Special Tribunal for Lebanon.Khayat and Al-Jadeed have both pled not guilty to the charges against them.The case has been legally controversial within the Special Tribunal itself: in July of last year, Contempt Judge Nicola Lettieri issued a decision that the STL did not have the jurisdiction to hear a case against legal entities, namely Al-Jadeed S.A.L and Al-Akhbar newspaper.Lettieri's ruling, however, was overturned by an appeals panel, and the charges against Al-Jadeed and Al-Akhbar were reinstated in October.
