Defense counselors for defendant Mustafa Badreddine cross examined a onetime friend of Sami Issa before the Special Tribunal for Lebanon Monday. Prosecutors contend Issa was a cover identity adopted by Badreddine.Last week the witness testified that he knew Issa socially between 2002 and 2010, when Issa broke off contact. French-Lebanese defense attorney Antoine Korkmaz painstakingly interrogated the witness on his initial contacts with the office of the prosecutor and his relationship with investigators and members of Hariri's security detail.He seemed particularly interested in details the witness had given about Issa and the physical description he provided to prosecutors. The witness had provided a description of Issa's face to prosecutors to make a sketch.
