Defense counselors at The Hague Wednesday questioned the experience of a U.N. analyst who investigated the Rafik Hariri assassination, disputing the prosecution's interpretation of telecommunications data as they advocated the existence of a separate conspiracy. Guenael Mettraux, representing the interests of defendant Assad Hassan Sabra, cross examined prosecutorial investigator Kei Kamei for a third consecutive day at the Special Tribunal for Lebanon. Prosecutors contend Abu Adass was simply naive, coerced into making the video by the defendants.Mettraux seized on this, pointing to the same call data records from which much of the prosecution's case has been developed.Cross examination was continued by Philippe Larochelle, representing the interests of Hussein Oneissi, who drew attention to Kamei's relative lack of experience.The tribunal will continue Thursday for the conclusion of Kamei's cross-examination and testimony from a senior investigator she worked with on the case.
