Nicolas: arrested FPM offical had no relationship with Hezbollah


Free Patriotic Movement MP Nabil Nicolas, told New TV on Thursday that FPM official and Brigadier General Fayez Karam had no relationship with Hezbollah – an ally of the FPM.

Karam who was arrested on Tuesday on suspicion of collaborating with Israel has reportedly admitted that he has been spying for Israel and that he has met several Israeli officials during his trips to Europe.

Nicolas said that Karam’s arrest comes as a shock, adding, “We never had any suspicion that Karam could be collaborating with Israel.”

However, he said that the FPM will follow up on the investigation and wait for the judiciary’s verdict.

If Karam is proven guilty, he will be tried just like any other Israeli agent, Nicolas said.

Karam and General Michel Aoun went into exile in France following the defeat by the Syrian army in 1990 and both returned to lebanon following the withdrawal of the Syrian army from Lebanon in 2005 .

Karam ran for parliamentary elections in 2005 and 2009 but lost

Hezbollah which is closely associated with Aoun has been calling for the execution of all spies

    that would be great if aoun is a spy too. get rid of him as well.

  2. Yesterday, karam admitted to the accusation of spying. What business nicolas has in negating karam’s admission, why waste time in just making unfounded statements. Who asked nicolas to be karam’s mouth piece, does he or the fpm have anything to do with the allegations!!! Are they hiding something!!!

  3. In Lebanon an Israeli spy is unknowingly a Syrian spy. Due to the Israeli and Syrian Intelligent community’s tight cooperation when it comes to Lebanon, an Israeli spy thinks that he is working for Israel however he is actually working for Syria and vice versa. I wonder how many of them are nested within the Houzbalah leadership. After all their speeches sound the same.. “Israel this Israel that … then Hob tob .. He is an Israeli agent!
