The court decided to release from custody known Lebanese actor Ziad Itani, who spent several months in prison on suspicion of spying for Israel. He also ordered the arrest of the intelligence officer who led his case.
After the release of Itani met with the Prime Minister of Lebanon Saad al-Hariri. «I’m an artist, I am the son of the scene. I could blame like that?» perplexed Ziad.
The answer to this question should give the investigation launched against major Lebanese counterintelligence of Susana Habashi, the former head of the Department to protect intellectual property and combat cyber-crime. She is suspected of fabricating the case.
According to the suspicions, Habasha used the services of a hacker, hacked into the computer Itani and created a fake page designed to catch the actor in the relations with the Israeli agents, and then initiate an investigation.
According to the newspaper «al-Nahar», the motive of these actions was personal revenge – the investigator believed that Itani guilty that it was removed from previous post.
