The Special Tribunal for Lebanon deliberated Tuesday whether it should terminate the prosecution of Hezbollah commander Mustafa Badreddine.Badreddine's death was reported in Lebanese media on May 13 .Prosecutors have submitted requests to Lebanese authorities for additional confirmation, including a death certificate.Cameron cited as precedent a case in which the International Criminal Court terminated prosecution due to the apparent passing of defendant Saleh Jerbo, despite the absence of a death certificate.Several members of the bench appeared to suggest that even if it were produced, a certificate might not sway them.Haynes said the court should pursue other means of confirming his death, including DNA evidence or testimony from family members.The tribunal will hear further submissions on the subject Wednesday from Antoine Korkmaz, who has represented Badreddine at trial.
