The use of testimony given to the Special Tribunal for Lebanon by investigator Gary Platt sparked a heated head-to-head Tuesday as the defense team accused the prosecution of misusing his testimony.When Platt attempted to delve into phone calls made on the so-called purple network, lead defense counsel Mohamed Aouini, who represents Hassan Merhi, quickly interjected. Aouini accused the prosecution of going out of bounds by letting Platt testify on the "purple network," which he said was not a covert network.After a dispute between the prosecution and defense regarding Platt's exact title and boundaries of responsibility, Judge David Re ultimately motioned in favor of the prosecution, stating that objections taken against Platt would be dealt with on a case-by-case basis.
