Prosecution analyst Andrew Donaldson testified before the trial chamber at the Special Tribunal for Lebanon Tuesday, providing further evidence linking the cellphone labeled "Purple 018" to Assad Sabra, one of indicted suspects in the Rafik Hariri assassination plot.Tuesday, he broke down Sabra's connection to Purple 018 and went into full detail, examining text messages sent and received by the device.Donaldson noted the significance of this text message for two reasons: First, Sabra's wife Hala is mentioned, and second, the text was sent during the period in which Donaldson has contended that the device was used exclusively by Sabra.Following further scrutiny of texts messages in front of the trial chamber, Donaldson provided a list of Purple 018's contacts that he had attributed to various members of Sabra's family, including Sabra's brother-in-law Hassan Haidar Makkai, his brother Ali Hassan Sabra and his father Hassan Taan Sabra.
