The Special Tribunal for Lebanon's prosecution and defense teams convened before the Appeals Chamber for Wednesday's hearing to respond to questions posed by Pre Trial Judge Daniel Fransen regarding a confidential indictment. Fransen received the indictment on Jul. 21, 2017, and then submitted questions related to the legal procedures related to filing indictments generally. According to the document, Fransen raised several questions related to Article 335 of the Lebanese Criminal Code. At Wednesday's STL hearing, the exact meaning of Article 335 was expanded upon by Judge Ralph Riachi, STL's vice president.Head of Prosecution Normal Farrell made similar arguments about the defense's submissions, calling certain of their legal interpretations "assumptions" that were "clearly not the law".The latest indictment has remained confidential, even to the defense.
