The Rafik Hariri assassination trial resumed Tuesday at the Special Tribunal for Lebanon with testimony from the prosecution's top telecommunications witness. Defense attorneys sought to discredit the evidence of John Edward Philips, an expert in cell-site analysis and vital to prosecution's case. Four members of Hezbollah are being tried in absentia for killing the former prime minister; the evidence against them is based on the discovery of covert cellular networks on which the murder was allegedly plotted.Philips testified Tuesday that such manipulation was possible, but inherently difficult, as many processes are automated and extraction of the data is a complex undertaking.Defense attorneys also questioned Philips' ability to testify about the covert networks in question.Monday, the court fined Al-Akhbar Editor-in-Chief Ibrahim al-Amin 20,000 euros ($22,000) for interfering with the administration of justice.
