The Tribunal has heard evidence from many such witnesses during an in absentia trial of five Hezbollah members for the 2005 car bombing that killed former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri and 21 others.Three of the four counts resulted in acquittal, but Khayat was found guilty of contempt for intentionally ignoring a court order requesting the removal of the offending episodes from the station's website. She was fined 10,000 euros ($11,260) at a hearing Monday, a markedly lighter sentence than the 100,000 euros and one-year imprisonment requested by Scott. Any appeal will be heard by the Tribunal's appellate judges, whose verdict would be final.
