Saqr Charges 10 with Belonging to al-Nusra Front

State Commissioner to the Military Court Judge Saqr Saqr charged on Friday ten people with belonging to an armed group and al-Nusra Front.

The state-run National News Agency reported that the 10 men include Shadi al-Mawlawi, who was released on bail upon his arrest in the northern city of Tripoli in May last year, and another detained man.

Mawlawi was charged then with belonging to a terrorist group.

Later, LBCI reported that the detainee was identified as Amine Khaled who admitted during interrogations that the group coordinates with Fatah al-Islam leader Osama al-Shahabi.

Al-Shahabi is currently present at the Ain el-Hilweh Palestinian refugee camp near the southern city of Sidon, the channel said.

Saqr accused the men of belonging to an armed group and al-Nusra Front to carry out terrorist acts and transfer arms between Lebanon and Syria.

Mawlawi told LBCI that the judicial system is corrupt and he doesn't “trust it,” considering that the charges are “invalid” and “useless.”

He called on the judiciary to issue arrest warrants against Hizbullah first, warning against any attempts to arrest him.

“All security agencies know my movements,” Mawlawi told the channel.

The al-Nusra Front, completely unknown before the rebellion in Syria that began two years ago, has been a rebel standard-bearer since mid-2012 when it became the spearhead of the insurgency ahead of the Free Syrian Army.

The organization has been blacklisted in December by the United States as a "terrorist" organization and makes no secret of its aim for Syria to become an Islamist state.

Saqr referred the suspects to the First Military Magistrate.
