A military prosecutor Wednesday charged accused hacker Elie Ghabash of fabricating evidence that led to the arrest of an Army officer, a judicial source told The Daily Star.Itani was arrested in November on charges of collaborating with Israel. He was released Tuesday, and arrest warrants were issued for Ghabash and former Internal Security Forces Cyber-Crimes Bureau chief Maj. Suzan Hajj Hobeiche, who are accused of being involved in fabricating evidence that led to Itani's arrest. Hobeiche has denied employing Ghabash to fabricate evidence, while – according to a judicial source – Ghabash said Tuesday that Hobeiche was the only reason he had heard of Itani.
