The Military Court released from jail on Thursday Lebanese citizen, Ziad al-Homsi, after he served time on charges of collaborating with Israeli intelligence, reported al-Jadeed television.
Homsi was accused in December 2010 of collaborating with Israel and he was sentenced to 15 years in jail with hard labor.
He was released after some three years in jail and causes for his release have not been disclosed.
Homsi is the former mayor of the Bekaa town of Saadneyel and he was serving as its deputy mayor at the time of his arrest in 2009.
He has been released shortly after retired Brigadier General Fayez Karam was released from jail after serving time on charges of collaborating with Israel.
Karam was arrested in 2010 and set free last April, benefitting from the reduction of the prison year.
