Prosecutorial staff took the stand again at the Special Tribunal for Lebanon Wednesday, testifying about the geographic surveys and phone record analysis they conducted in support of the prosecution's allegation that five Hezbollah members carried out extensive surveillance to plot the 2005 assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri.While Stana said the six numbers had been randomly chosen from those with a high call volume, Edwards revealed that one number belonged to his client, and others to "political figures".With the help of lead judge David Re, who appeared sympathetic to the defense's arguments, Edwards cornered Stana into conceding it was a "logical proposition" that the variances he had established might actually undermine the prosecution's alleged time sequences of mobile phone calls. Edwards also grilled the analyst on tabular breakdowns of the time variances and associated number of calls.
