FPM MP: ISF cannot carry carry out investigations- update


Free patriotic Movement MP Ziad Michel Aswad told New TV on Monday that the Internal Security Forces (ISF) Intelligence Branch was not credible, adding that it could arrest individuals but not investigate with them.

The Intelligence Branch arrested senior FPM official retired Brigadier General Fayez Karam on suspicion of spying for Israel earlier last week and carried out an investigation with him.

The examination was completed on Saturday and the case of the inquiry was transferred to the office of Attorney General Judge Said Mirza.

“It is unacceptable to call Karam a spy when no indictment has been made yet,” Aswad said, adding that he did not know how the Information Branch carried out its investigation.

FPM leader MP Michel Aoun and his party are also targeted, he added.

Karam and Aoun went into exile in France following Aoun’s defeat by the Syrian army in 1990 and both returned to Lebanon in May 2005 , 11 days following the withdrawal of the Syrian army from Lebanon.

Hezbollah’s Al Manar reported last week that Karam has admitted to spying for the Mossad and unveiled that he began collaborating with Israel in the early 1990s.


Military court trial

National News Agency reported that Judge Said Mirza referred Karam , after studying his, to the military court for prosecution.

Karam, 62, graduated from the military school in 1972 as lieutenant. He held several leadership positions in the army, including head of the counter-terror and spying bureau.

Based on articles 274-278, those convicted of spying for Israel could face the death sentence

More than 80 people have been arrested on suspicion of spying for the Israeli Mossad since April 2009, when the government launched a nationwide crackdown on alleged rings.

    Voice of Truth Syria is trying to bring Aoun to its side. Getting Karam implicated in the spying circle is only to divide them. Also its a warning to Aoun to again side with syria or face steeper price. There will be a time when Aoun will be assasinated and hezbollah claims will be that israel did it to create civil strife. All the Iranians intelligence officers and many coming to Lebanon on direct orders from Khameini to show support for Hezbollah and show Syria who’s boss in Lebanon. Why so many visit suddenly by Iranians? why to the borders also parading themselves in front of the israelis? Cathy and Tony and leb-first and syrian second and all these guys do not understand what the heck is going on. they blindly support hezbollah attitude toward lebanese and israel. Fine you can be the enemy of israel but why kill Lebanese? why kill hariri? all they had to do is force him out of power and they had the sources and power to do it. Syria had him killed and they thought they can get away with it as they have with many leaders. They do not care who protest against them in Lebanon. Its not really fair that hezbollah gets accused and Syria doesn’t. this is a ploy by the west who in return convinced the STL that having to implicate both Syria and hezbollah will not only be detrimental to Lebanon but the whole middle east and europe in fact. because you do not only have syria and hezbollah you have also Iran who can back them. This is a again a ploy to say look forget Syria now and we can get them later. Lets divide them by implicating hezbollah only. This is just the beginning and Hariri is not that stupid to keep going to Damascus knowing that his father was killed by them. But he is going along with the west to divide them. After all if syria and hezbollah are accused who’s going to bring both to justice? but if Hezbollah is accused they could also topple him. But having the support of Syria, hezbollah will be on double edge sword to remove him from power. Can’t you people see how Harir and Assad Laughing so hard on TV. it amazes me as if they’re twin brothers. Why is hariri is cozying up to Assad? he wants his backing against hezbollah and he knows without them not even the lebanese can save his ass. unfortunately no matter it doesn’t look good for Lebanon.

    “…why kill hariri…???”

    the answer is plain and simple: REVENGE, REVENGE AND REVENGE and this was in reaction to the fact that hariri along with aoun, eventhough they denied it later on, were the secret godfathers of un resolution 1559!!!!!!!!!!!

    considered by syria as an act of high treason coming from the united nations and requested by some leaders of a brotherly nation.

    the first was following the matter through undercover with ex french president chirac, the second was coordinating with the us expats and the us congress.

    needless to say, the un resolution 1559 dealt a serious blow to the syrian regime that forced them into a humiliating withdrawal from lebanon, al quatr al chakik. this blow was much worst than the loss of the golan heights to the israelis.

  7. A Palestinian friend said he thinks that a rival Sunni group did it. I don’t know what to believe but I do know that if I were Assad and had all of his drives and goals, I’d have been worried about Hariri’s increasing popularity, especially after having spent so much time disenfranchising the Christians.
