The prosecutor of the special court investigating the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri is leaving his office.
The Special Tribunal for Lebanon says Daniel Bellemare has informed U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon that he is not seeking a renewal when his term expires in February for health reasons.
Bellemare has led the probe that has indicted four members of the Hezbollah militia for the 2005 truck bomb that killed Hariri and 22 others, including the suicide bomber. Hezbollah denies involvement.
The court is based in the Dutch town of Leidschendam near The Hague.
Bellemare said in statement Wednesday that while there's a long way before the case is resolved, "solid foundations have been laid to achieve justice."
