The Special Tribunal for Lebanon opened 2016 with evidence from prosecutorial investigator Alasdair Macleod, whose inability or unwillingness to divulge information were the theme of the day's proceedings.Having spent nearly a decade working on the case, Macleod has been employed by the tribunal since its inception. Defense counselors have repeatedly questioned the qualifications and experience of a number of investigators who have testified before the court, but Macleod has apparently made a career of such work.Macleod said he did not recall that investigators ever wrote up answers in Arabic.Larochelle was incredulous that such materials did not exist. Defense counselors have sought to unpack and evaluate the methodology investigators used in their work, and to retrace their various lines of inquiry. After the break, Macleod reported that the search had in fact reminded him of certain details. But whatever they were, the court chose to hear them in a private session.
