Individuals who have information regarding the February 2005 assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri and other recent political killings can now provide that to the Prosecutor at the United Nations-backed Special Tribunal for Lebanon through a newly created, secure webpage.

The webpage was designed specifically for individuals "who have valuable information for the investigation but have no secure and confidential means to contact the Investigation Division of the Office of the Prosecutor," according to a news release issued by the court.

The Tribunal noted that the webpage is a tool used in many parts of the world to facilitate access to investigators by potential witnesses. This particular webpage is available in the court's three official languages – Arabic, English and French.

An independent body located in The Hague, the Tribunal is designed to try those accused of a series of recent political murders in Lebanon, particularly the February 2005 bombing that killed Mr. Hariri and 22 others in downtown Beirut.

It took over from the Beirut-based International Independent Investigation Commission (IIIC) in the beginning of March 2009.
