The trial of Tarek Rabaa continues with "Challenge"
Tarek started by a short speech about his arbitrary detention and he announced his possession of an official document ratified by the French state proving that the French cellular phone mentioned in the file is used by a taxi company and not by the Mossad. Then Tarek asked the head of the court to open an investigation about this French number and the arbitrary detention, an investigation to be supervised by the president of the Lebanese republic Michel Sleiman. Then a discussion started with the general Khalil Ibrahim about some phone numbers, then Tarek slammed his hand on the table to express his disgust regarding the intelligence error in converting a Taxi number to a number for the Mossad which was the base of the suspicion...the head of the court warned Tarek to not repeat such gesture again in the court.
Afterwards, Tarek asked the court "do you have a confession in the file that i collaborated with the Mossad?". The head of the court said "i read your file in detail, you didn't confess but you are accused". Then Tarek asked "i am accused based on what?". The head of the court said "we have evidences against you". Tarek said "i am challenging you and the court to show me one evidence". The head of the court said "a camera with a secret hiding-place". Tarek said "the camera you have is a normal camera and it has a place for the memory card and not a hiding-place. I challenge you to bring this camera here and i have a report from an expert that this camera doesn't have a hiding-place". Then his lawyer Nada Rabaa argued with the court about the arbitrary detention and the unlawful file, but the head of the court told her nervously to not attack the court....Then, general Khalil Ibrahim told Tarek "if you are innocent i dare to sentence you as innocent", and he called for Tarek's wife Samar Harb.
Samar confirmed that the camera is a normal one and that she has two brothers who call her from Germany and from Australia. The head of the court asked her "do you know that your husband is married with a second wife?". Samar said "sure, and i encourage that". Then Khalil Ibrahim called for Alfa CEO, Marwan Hayek, who confirmed that Lionel Coussi is French, he knew him and Tarek is not responsibie for the cellular data records. Marwan confirmed that he knows Tarek since 1995 and he travelled with him to France and to Prague.
Then was the turn of Farid Baz who said he was the line manager of Tarek, and he travelled with him to Greece and to China. Farid denied that the company installs station for listening, but just stations to serve the cellular network.
After Farid, the head of the court called for Wissam Karam who is the responsible for the OSS system. He explained that this system can track the cellular phones but Tarek Rabaa has no username and password on this system. Wissam said that Charbel Kazzi has access to the OSS.
At the end Tarek demanded to be released because he is innocent and oppressed. The head of the court has postponed the trial to April 12, 2013 to hear for the witnesses Jihad El Murr, Cesar Saleh and Pierre Abi Nader. His lawyer submitted documents proving the torture and the French number to belong to a French transport company located in France.
