The defense team for Hussein Oneissi made their submissions Tuesday for the acquittal of their client, in what was a tense day at the Special Tribunal for Lebanon. Vincent Courcelle-Labrousse, lead counsel on Oneissi's defense team, sought to persuade the judges that there was insufficient evidence linking his client to the 2005 assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri in an attack that also killed 21 others, and that the evidence that had been presented by prosecution teams was flawed.The defense lawyer noted the 15 percent margin for error with cellphone evidence, though Judge Re countered that other forensic evidence could also have similar margins.The Oneissi defense team will conclude their submissions Feb. 21 .
