The contentious trial of Al-Akhbar Editor-in-Chief Ibrahim al-Amin carried on behind closed doors Thursday, as the Special Tribunal for Lebanon redacted nearly the entire public broadcast. Amin and his newspaper have been charged with contempt of court for the publication of a list of alleged confidential witnesses scheduled to testify in the assassination trial of Rafik Hariri. Rahal testified he and another officers served court papers on Amin's lawyer, Nizar Saghieh, after multiple attempts to contact him directly at Al-Akbar's offices. He said that at the time, he served all court documents on Amin this way.Abou Kasm has contended that Amin never received some of the court's correspondence.Abou Kasm was appointed by the court to defend Amin, who has refused to appear.
