Investigator Gary Platt's testimony at the Special Tribunal for Lebanon Thursday provided further details on the command and control structure of the conspiracy leading up to the 2005 assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri.Prompted by a question from Judge David Re, Platt also explained why Ayyash and Mustafa Badreddine, who the prosecution alleges played a leading role in the conspiracy, were usually far away from Hariri himself.In addition to mapping out the control structure of the operation, Platt and Prosecutor Nigel Povoas also detailed unusual activity on Jan. 31, 2005 that, according to Platt, demonstrated some of the group's surveillance strategies.Though both Platt and Povoas implied that this topic would be discussed more extensively in further testimony, they noted that the use of these phones might have been an attempt to divert attention from other aspects of the conspiracy.
