Parliament's Media and Telecommunications Committee called on Prime Minister Tammam Salam to hold an emergency Cabinet session to investigate "illegal" Internet service providers.The news conference followed a meeting of the committee which included judicial and security officials. The meeting was convened following Harb's revelation last week that an unlicensed Internet service provider was operating across Lebanon. Harb claimed that the network was being used by Israel to spy on citizens and the state. Fadlallah confirmed that the private sector had alerted the authorities to the network's existence. Both Fadlallah and Harb maintain that they have no idea how the network was established nor were they aware of how the complex equipment made its way into Lebanon.Fadlallah said the committee was waiting for answers over the matter from the Interior and Defense ministries.Harb has repeatedly declared that the owners of the network were the same individuals who established the Al-Barouk complex, which was alleged to have a satellite connection with Israel in 2009 .
