Lebanese-born Ali Fayyad, held in the Czech Republic on terrorism charges levied by the U.S and whose name is tied to the case of the disappearance of five Czechs in Lebanon, was on a mission for the Lebanese Army intelligence when he was arrested, a leaked intelligence report obtained by The Daily Star said.According to the document, Fayyad had tipped off Military Intelligence about a large-scale weapons smuggling deal involving Lebanese businessmen.The intelligence report submitted to Prague's Municipal Court by the Lebanese Embassy in Prague revealed that Fayyad was tasked by Lebanese Military Intelligence to attend the Prague meeting which led to his arrest.Lahhaf, Fayyad's nephew told The Daily Star that the family had not seen the military intelligence report and said that he was not aware that his uncle was providing military intelligence with information regarding the deal. However, he did confirm that Fayyad was in Lebanon a week before his arrest.Last April, the Prague City Court ruled that Fayyad, Jaber and Marabi may be extradited to the United States.
