General Prosecutor Judge Hatem Madi requested on Monday the recordings of interviews and a press conference conducted by Mustaqbal MP Oqab Saqr in recent weeks, reported the National News Agency.
He ordered the recording of an interview he gave to al-Jadeed television on Sunday, a press conference broadcast on Future TV on Thursday, and the leaked audiotape with a Syrian rebel aired by OTV on November 29.
The judge requested the tapes in order to verify his claims.
Madi had tasked on Tuesday the Central Criminal Investigations Bureau with examining audio recordings implicating Saqr in the transfer of arms to Syria.
OTV and al-Akhbar newspaper, both close to the Hizbullah-led March 8 majority coalition, broadcast and printed a three-part series of the recordings in which the lawmaker allegedly discussed arrangements to ship arms supplies to the Syrian opposition.
Saqr held a press conference last week challenging the Syrian government and his Lebanese foes to prove that he was indeed providing rebels with weapons.
