LIMASSOL— The trial of a Hezbollah member accused of preparing attacks on Israelis in Cyprus has concluded with final summations submitted to the court in writing.
The court then asked defense and prosecution lawyers to clarify specific parts of their summations, which weren't read out or made public Thursday. The court said it will render its verdict on March 21.
Defense lawyer Antonis Georgiades said after the court adjourned that prosecutors haven't proved a case against his client Hossam Taleb Yaacoub.
Yaacoub, a 24-year-old Swedish-Lebanese citizen, has pleaded not guilty to eight charges including conspiracy and participation in a criminal organization. He denies that Hezbollah is a criminal organization.
