ABSTRACT
In this article the author reflects on the Special Tribunal for Lebanon's (STL) sealed indictment of the suspects in the 2005 assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik al-Hariri in Lebanon. Prime Minister Najib Mikati's confirmation about the indictment as well as its commitment to abide its political, national, and legal obligations is cited. However, the author argues the confusion of Mikati's statement due to questions regarding legitimacy of the STL's decision.
