BEIRUT: The head of the Judicial Council Monday set a late September trial date for Islamist prisoners who allegedly fought the Lebanese Army in 2007 at the Palestinian refugee camp of Nahr al-Bared in north Lebanon.

Judge Jean Fahd set Sept. 27 as the trial date for Fatah al-Islam members charged with crimes and misdemeanors against Lebanese soldiers during the battle at the northern refugee camp.

However, a judicial source said the Nahr al-Bared case has been split up into 30 cases.

The first trial session, which will be held at a renovated courtroom at Lebanon’s Roumieh prison, will be case No. 1. It includes the trial of 45 suspects – 10 of whom are in custody and the rest of whom are at large.

Following Fatah al-Islam’s defeat at Nahr al-Bared, security services sought the arrest of 570 individuals for involvement with the Al-Qaeda-inspired group. Only 93 suspects remain in custody after many were released on bail while others remain at large.
