Lebanese Judge issues arrest warrant against Syrian general

A Lebanese Judge issued an arrest warrant against Syrian General Ali Mamluk accused of plotting terrorist attacks in the country.

First Military Investigative Judge Riad Abu Ghida issued the arrest warrant in absentia on Monday, the National News Agency reported.

The report added that the judge also issued an arrest warrant against Mamluk’s office manager identified by his first name Adnan, before concluding the investigations in the case.

Mamluk has been linked to the case of Lebanese ex-Information Minister Michel Samaha who, on August 9 last year, was arrested by Lebanese security forces.

Samaha, who has close ties with Syria's embattled regime, was indicted with smuggling weapons into Lebanon in a bid to foment terrorism.
 
Two Syrian army officers, including Mamluk and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s advisor Bouthaina Shaaban, were also indicted for their alleged involvement in Samaha’s case.
