Military Tribunal Judge Imad al-Zein interrogated on Monday a Lebanese man on charges of collaborating with Israel, reported the National News Agency.
He is accused of collaborating with Israel, meeting with Israeli officials in a number of foreign countries and providing them with information on the Lebanese and Syrian armies, as well as the members of Hizbullah.
An arrest warrant was issued against him and he may face the death penalty if convicted.
The suspect cooperated with Israel for nearly 22 years in return for massive sums of money, said NNA.
The retired engineer who used to work at a state institution, provided Israel with information of the location of the Lebanese and Syrian army in Lebanon when the latter was deployed in the country.
He also provided it with information on the residences of a number of Hizbullah officials, including former party chiefs Sheikh Abbas Moussawi, who was assassinated in 1992, and Sobhi Tufaili, as well as Hizbullah cleric Sheikh Mohammed Yazbeck.
In addition, he gave Israel information on private and public institutions that were targeted by Israeli strikes in the July 2006 war.
The suspect possessed a fake Palestinian passport that enabled him to enter Israel.
His interrogation will continue on Tuesday.
