The contempt case against Al-Jadeed TV and journalist Karma al-Khayat went into its second day at the Special Tribunal for Lebanon Friday, with the defense highlighting the recurrence of leaks coming from the court.Friday's session opened with the cross-examination of prosecution witness John Comeau, a retired STL employee who was previously assigned to have direct contact with prosecutor witnesses in the Rafik Hariri assassination case, one day after the defense accused the witness of delivering false testimony and lying under oath. The defense raised the issue of confidential information being published by other news outlets in an effort to establish that Al-Jadeed intended to expose the alleged leaks and not intimidate purported witnesses.
