Prosecutors investigating the assassination of former Lebanese prime minister Rafiq al-Hariri are expected to issue indictments in the case on Monday.

Members of the Hezbollah movement, which with its allies pulled out of the unity government on Wednesday over the prime minister's stance on the UN-backed Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL), are expected to be named in the chargesheet.

Daniel Bellemare, the prosector for the Special Tribunal for Lebanon based in The Hague, is due to submit the chargesheet to a pre-trial judge on Monday, the French newspaper Le Monde reported on Saturday.

Boutros Harb, the acting labour minister, confirmed the report.

"According to my information, the chargesheet will be submitted on Monday," he told the AFP news agency.

We shall see what happens when the tribunal will have to catch those it indicted.
