The defense team for Hassan Merhi argued in its closing arguments Tuesday at the Special Tribunal for Lebanon that the mishandling of the crime scene significantly weakens the prosecution's case.Abu Adass' remains were never identified at the crime scene, which led the prosecution to believe that he was killed by Merhi, Oneissi and Sabra.To counter this narrative, Merhi's defense team argued that Abu Adass' body could very likely have been found had the crime scene not been so poorly managed.Ayoub, a forensic expert, was one of the first people to comb through the crime scene following the bombing, and testified for the prosecution.Merhi's defense team pressed that uncertainties created by the mismanagement of the crime scene posed pertinent questions as to Abu Adass' whereabouts on Feb. 14 .
