STL judge orders access to former Lebanese general's file

A special tribunal on Thursday ordered that former Lebanese general Jamil El Sayed, detained for four years in connection with the death of former Lebanese prime minister Rafiq Hariri, be given access to his case file.

Sayed, Lebanon's former security services director, was arrested following the death of Hariri and 22 other people in a Beirut bomb attack on February 14, 2005.

At a previous hearing at The Hague-based Special Tribunal for Lebanon -- set up by the UN to prosecute those responsible for the attack -- Sayed had requested access to his file in order to launch proceedings in another court.
