Sensitive security information was kept from prime ministers serving under President Emile Lahoud, Fouad Sinoira told the Special Tribunal for Lebanon Wednesday. Moreover, Siniora accused the Syrian-Lebanese "security apparatus" of tampering with crime scene immediately after Hariri's assassination. Al-Hajj, who headed the Internal Security Forces at the time of Hariri's assassination, would have been responsible for securing the crime scene after the blast which killed Hariri and 21 others in February 2005 .Over the past two weeks, the defense has hinted that Lahoud and his "clique" in the Lebanese-Syrian security apparatus may have had motive to kill Hariri.I cannot do that in any way," Siniora said.He balked, however, when pressed by Judge Nicola Lettieri on why Hariri had not report the assassination plots to the authorities.
