Abstract: 

The assassination of Rafiq Hariri, the former prime minster of Lebanon and his accompanying persons at 14 February 2005 gave an opportunity to the international community to bring the crime of terrorism into justice by a special tribunal. This Tribunal is a forum beyond a national court. It was established by the resolutions of the United Nations Security Council and an agreement between the UN and the Lebanon government. The crime of terrorism, as well as, conspiracy, sectarian violence and civil war related crimes are under the jurisdiction of the Tribunal. Lebanen Criminal Law is the applicable criminal law of the Tribunal and the Chambers of the Tribunal compose both Lebanese and the international judges. The establishment of the Lebanon Special Tribunal is important not for giving more clarity to the different dimensions of the crime of terrorism but because it can be considered as a further step towards expanding fight against impunity. Since by this time, the jurisdiction of all the international crimes such as War Crimes, Crimes against Humanity and Genocide. Where as, Lebanon Special Tribunal has extended the scope of fighting against International Crimes by adjudging the crime of terrorism. The structure, organs, jurisdiction, and the procedure of this Tribunal have optimistically increased the possibility of the suppression of terrorism despite the political considerations.
