    "Meanwhile, in the coming weeks, the special UN tribunal looking into the 2005 assassination of former Lebanese prime minister Rafik Hariri is slated to present findings which are expected to implicate both ... in the killing". (The Jerusalem Post, March 28, 2011)
    • Why "prime minister" in small letters? Shouldn't it be in capital letters, Prime Minster, since the name is following?
    • Could the expression: "slated to" be replaced for "expected to"?

    Not a teacher.

    Some style guides consider former titles to be descriptive phrases, and therefore not subject to capitalization.
