STL’s Sick Bellemare away from Seat
Local Editor

The acting spokesman of Special Tribunal for Lebanon Prosecutor Daniel Bellemare confirmed information that the judge is currently away from the STL seat.

"As a matter of policy we do not discuss details of the health of staff," Gregory Townsend, the senior legal officer and acting spokesperson of Bellemare's office, told "Naharnet".

"We can confirm that the prosecutor has been away from the seat of the STL in Leidschendam, Netherlands, due to health reasons," he said.

"Bellemare is in constant contact with his staff and the work of the office of the prosecutor continues at full speed," he added.

The acting spokesperson's comment came after pan-Arab daily al-Hayat reported that Bellemare is suffering from an advanced stage of diabetes.

Bellemare has isolated himself in a room in Canada away from the people's sight over his "serious illness," it said.

When asked if the prosecutor would attend a hearing at the STL next Friday, Townsend did not comment.
