NNA - First Military Investigative Judge Riad Abu Ghaida has ordered the release of Theater Director and Playwright Ziad Itani, and issued an arrest warrant against Maj. Suzan Hajj Hobeiche, NNA reporter said on Tuesday.

Judge Abu Ghaida concluded earlier during the day his interrogation of Maj. Hobeiche into the case at the Military Tribunal.

Maj. Hobeiche's Defense Lawyer, Rashid Derbas, said in the wake of the interrogation session that Hobeiche denied all accusations leveled against her, noting the lack of definitive evidence that condemns her.

On the other hand, Judge Abu Ghaida referred Ziad Itani's release decision to the Government Commissioner at the Military Court, Judge Peter Germanus, who would either approve the verdict or file an appeal.
