A man who had served as a bodyguard for former former premier Rafik Hariri testified at the Special Tribunal for Lebanon Wednesday, recalling his role escorting the statesman. PRH 101 held a leadership position on Hariri's security detail, and worked for the former PM until his assassination on Valentine's Day 2005 . In 2008, PRH 101 provided U.N. investigators with the names, phone numbers, and respective positions of Hariri's three-team, 24-member security detail.Hariri resigned as prime minister in October 2004, after which his Internal Security Forces escort was reportedly substantially reduced.To this end, they took the witness through a number of maps he had produced of common routes the convoy took from Hariri's Qoreitem residence to Parliament and Beirut's airport. He was also asked whether he remembered specific trips, such as when Hariri visited Saudi Arabia for Eid just weeks before he was killed.
