The Special Tribunal for Lebanon began hearing testimony Monday from Lebanese telecommunications distributor Power Group, which sold to Tripoli retailers SIM cards for phone numbers implicated in the red and green networks, including that of the alleged suicide bomber in the 2005 assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri. Established 1994 in Beirut, Power Group distributes SIM cards, recharge cards and handsets. A December 2004 delivery note listed the serial numbers of eight SIM cards linked to red network numbers.Other documents showed that in April 2006, Power Group sold a SIM card for the personal number subsequently used by Badreddine for two months.The prosecution also presented business records showing that of the 18 postpaid phone numbers allegedly used by the green network, 12 had been distributed by Power Group.
