Military Investigative Judge Riyad Abu Ghayda Monday issued an arrest warrant in absentia for pro-Assad figure Ali Eid, head of the Arab Democratic Party, for failing to appear in court and aiding a terror suspect, a judicial source said.Eid, an Alawite figure in the northern city of Tripoli, has failed on two occasions to show up for questioning by the Military Tribunal. Ghayda's arrest warrant against Eid was over his alleged involvement in helping a suspect in last year's bombings in Tripoli flee into Syria, the source added.Ahmad Mohammad Ali, Eid's driver, reportedly confessed to attempting to smuggle Ahmad Merhi – a key suspect in the case – over the border into Syria on orders of the ADP chief.
