Contempt of court proceedings before the STL against a Lebanese journalist and the media company she works for. This case represents the first time that a corporation has been charged before an international criminal or hybrid court. Al Jadeed was acquitted on both counts and Ms. Khayat acquitted on one count and convicted of the lesser count (sentenced to a 10,000 Euro fine). The Prosecution has appealed the three acquittals and the Defence the one conviction.
