Khamenei says any Hariri tribunal ruling ‘null’

Reports from Iran say supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has dismissed as “null and void” any ruling by a United Nations court that is investigating the 2005 assassination of former Lebanese premier Rafiq Hariri, according to Radio Free Europe. The UN-backed Special Tribunal for Lebanon said on December 9 that it will “very, very soon” file indictments for the February 14, 2005, killing of Hariri and 22 others in a Beirut bomb blast. The tribunal reportedly plans to indict high-ranking operatives of the Shi’ite movement Hezbollah, Lebanon’s most powerful military force – which is backed by Tehran and Damascus.
