The former head of investigations of the Special Tribunal for Lebanon testified Monday that Hezbollah orchestrated the assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri – not an extremist Sunni group as claimed by a discredited confession video.Ensuing investigations first carried out by the Lebanese security apparatus, then the United Nations International Independent Investigation Commission and finally the STL, ultimately ruled out Abu Adass as a lead suspect.According to investigators, Abu Adass was likely a pawn used by several Hezbollah members to divert responsibility for the assassination. Defense counselor David Young, representing the interests of Sabra, however questioned the former investigator as to why further inquiries were not made into Khaled Taha – a Lebanese engineer associated with members of Al-Qaeda.
