Military Court of Cassation Appeals Verdict in ISF Officer's Case

Military Court of Cassation Appeals Verdict in ISF Officer's Case

State Commissioner to the Military Court of Cassation, Judge Ghassan Khoury, on Monday filed an appeal contesting the verdict issued in the case of ISF Officer Suzanne Al-Hajj, requesting a re-trial and the annulment of the previous judgement.

Khoury also demanded that all mitigating circumstances would be dismissed when looking into the role that Elie Ghabash had played in the case.

Last week, Hajj, former head of the ISF's Cyber Crime and Intellectual Property Rights Protection Office, was acquitted of all charges in the case of framing up Ziad Itani.

She is suspected of being involved in framing up Itani along with other accomplices, including Ghabash who worked as an informant for the State Security and was hired to open fake accounts online that helped fabricate evidence implicating Itani's collaboration with Israel.

The Military Court sentenced Ghabash to one year in jail.
