Not all Al-Jadeed journalists supported the controversial TV series highlighting alleged confidential witnesses at the Special Tribunal for Lebanon, according to the lawyer prosecuting the media outlet and journalist Karma Khayat for contempt of court.According to Scott's summary, Khayat initially assigned Hatoum to investigate a list of alleged confidential witnesses slated to testify before the Special Tribunal for Lebanon.Scott has argued that the program put alleged witnesses in danger by revealing personal details and that the broadcast as a whole attempted to undermine public confidence in the court.Bazzi also told court investigators that the faces of the witnesses had not been blurred well enough, Scott said.In an interview with court investigators, Khayat did not appear concerned with protecting witness identities, according to Scott.
