The spokesman of the military wing of the Meqdad clan has been released on bail, reported MTV on Friday.

It said that the General Prosecution agreed to released Maher al-Meqdad on a bail of L.L.15 million.

On Thursday, the Military Tribunal had approved a decision to release him, referring the matter to the General Prosecution.

Several other members of the family were arrested in September during raids on Beirut's southern suburbs and other areas.

The raids came after the clan went on an abduction spree of Syrians and Turkish nationals to avenge the kidnapping of family member Hassan al-Meqdad in Damascus in August.

The clan claimed responsibility for the kidnapping of more than 20 Syrians and a Turkish national.

Later on Friday, Military Tribunal Judge Imad al-Zein issued an indictment against Hussein Sobhi al-Meqdad, one of those arrested during the September raids, reported the National News Agency.

He charged him with forming an armed gang aimed at committing crimes against the people and carrying out terrorist activity.

He also charged him with the possession of arms and violent conduct against state security forces.

He has been referred to the permanent military court for trial.

This is why this government is failure--of course, these are the same type of people whom HA depends on for support: Drug smugglers, murderers, criminals, and kidnappers

Where is HA to state the outrage?

15 million bail came from the kidnappings and ransom to free innocent people or came from Iran for the resistance.
The criminals should have stayed in jail for few years to learn a lesson on how to destabilize the country.
