STL registrar to answer questions on Wednesday via Twitter

The Registrar of the Special Tribunal for Lebanon, Herman von Hebel, will answer questions from Lebanese citizens and the general public on Wednesday.

According to a statement issued by the STL website, the registrar “will be answering questions on Wednesday 7 December from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Central European Time (3-5 p.m. Beirut time)” via the social network Twitter.

“Questions directed to the registrar should contain the hashtag #STLRegistrar,” the statement said, adding that “the registrar is in effect the Chief Executive of the tribunal and is responsible for all aspects of its administration including the budget, fundraising, relations with states and court management.”

“This is an initiative to interact with the people of Lebanon and marks the official launch of the STL Twitter account, which has been operative from 1 November 2011.”

The tribunal has indicted four Hezbollah operatives in connection with ex-Premier Rafik Hariri’s 2005 murder but they have not surrendered to the court.
