STL contempt sentencing hearing scheduled


STL sentencing hearing on contempt case scheduled for 29 August: A sentencing hearing has been scheduled for 29 August 2016 in the contempt case against Mr Ibrahim Mohamed Ali Al Amin and Akhbar Beirut S.A.L. at the Special Tribunal for Lebanon. The sentencing decision will be delivered the same day, with the maximum penalty possible for a person found guilty of contempt being seven years and/or a fine of €100,000. The judgment in case STL-14-06 was delivered on 15 July 2016: Judge Nicola Lettieri found both defendants guilty of knowingly and wilfully interfering with the administration of justice. Mr Ibrahim Mohamed Ali Al Amin and Akhbar S.A.L. published information on the identity of confidential witnesses in the STL Ayyash case, an action that was felt to have undermined public confidence in the STL’s ability to protect witnesses.
