Now Lebanon - Human rights activist interrogated by Lebanese military intelligence - July 27, 2011

Human Rights NGO Alkarama's representative in Lebanon Saadeddine Shatila said in remarks published Wednesday that Lebanese military intelligence summoned him for interrogation on Tuesday, adding that he was detained on Monday from 8:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.
Asked about why he was interrogated, Shatila told Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Rai that the organization he works with wrote a report about violation and torture acts committed against those detained.
The report, which was submitted to the UN, addressed the torture that those detained in Lebanese army detention offices are subjected to, he added.
Shatila told the daily that he was not detained because of the report written about the situation of Syrian refugees in Lebanon, adding that he may be summoned for interrogation later.
