August 15, 2010 - Naharnet - Report: Nasrallah Advised Aoun to Ease up after Attempts to 'Mobilize' him against Karam's Arrest
Free Patriotic Movement leader Michel Aoun has reportedly tried to "mobilize" Hizbullah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah against the arrest of retired Brig. Gen. Fayez Karam. However, Nasrallah asked Aoun to ease up given that the Intelligence Bureau's decision to arrest the top FPM official couldn't have come without evidence and a clear examination of Karam's suspected ties to Israel.
An Nahar daily quoted sources as saying that Karam was arrested after luring him into a meeting with head of the Intelligence Bureau Col. Wissam al-Hassan.
In their last phone conversation, al-Hassan asked Karam to visit him at his office and confronted him with a file implicating him in the spying case, the sources said.
Cases of deprivation of liberty imposed arbitrarily are frequently referred to the CLDH.
The aim of the CLDH, besides the release of the person arbitrarily detained, is to restore these detainees in their rights in order to improve the right to justice in Lebanon, both for the detainees and the victims. [Ar]
