The father of the hacker suspected of framing actor Ziad Itani for collaborating with Israel has said his son was coerced into fabricating the evidence by a former high-ranking member of the Internal Security Forces.Ghabash and Hobeiche are meanwhile both accused of involvement in fabricating evidence against Itani, and the two were arrested after the actor spent 109 days in detention.Hobeiche has denied the allegations, while, according to a judicial source, Ghabash has said Hobeiche was the only reason he had ever heard of Itani.Ghabash's father went on to say his son had intentionally left gaps in fabricating the evidence against Itani so security forces could discover the false nature of the case.
