After two days of unsatisfactory oral submissions on the possible acquittal of Hassan Oneissi at the Special Tribunal for Lebanon, Trial Chamber President Judge David Re requested Thursday that both defense and prosecution teams provide written submissions.Re said Courcelle-Labrousse had previously indicated that he would be available for hearings later this week to resolve the question of Oneissi's application for acquittal.Only Oneissi's team has so far made a formal application for acquittal, although at the close of the prosecution's case, co-counsel for defendantSalim Ayyash said the prosecution had failed to provide sufficient evidence to convict him.The Trial Chamber had also requested the prosecution respond to the Ayyash team's claim that insufficient evidence had been provided by the prosecution.
