A CBC News and Radio-Canada Worldwide Exclusive - Getting Away With Murder: New Documentary Evidence About the Assassination of Lebanon's Former Prime Minister Rafik Al-Hariri

    Toronto, November 22 (ots/PRNewswire) - In a worldwide exclusive, CBC News and Radio-Canada have uncovered startling new information about the ongoing UN investigation into the assassination of Rafik Al-Hariri, the former prime minister of Lebanon - including confidential documents the UN wanted CBC to seek their permission to publish before making public.

    Getting Away With Murder reveals for the first time the identity of the senior Hariri insider that UN investigators suspect had prior knowledge of the attack, documented evidence against Hezbollah - the main suspect in the assassination, the efforts of Hezbollah to subsequently frustrate the investigation and the tragic story of the young Lebanese police officer who cracked the case only to be killed days after agreeing to work with the UN commission.

    Armed with never-before-revealed UN documentary evidence and identity-protected interviews with those directly involved in the special commission, Getting Away With Murder is the culmination of months of investigation by longtime CBC News and former Middle East correspondent Neil Macdonald.

    The special documentary will be broadcast on CBC News's The National on Monday November 22 at 9:00pm and 11:00pm ET/PT on CBC News Network and at 10:00pm (10:30 NT) on CBC Television.

    This special broadcast is coupled with an extensive online report available now at cbc.ca/thenational. It details meticulously the failures of the UN commission tasked with getting to the bottom of the investigation, only weeks before indictments are expected to be handed down from the Hague. Details of what UN investigators suspected and who they were kept from questioning will be revealed for the first time.
