Daily Star - Fayez Karam rushed to military hospital, October 27, 2011

BEIRUT: Retired Brig. Gen. Fayez Karam, who was sentenced to two years of hard labor for collaborating with Israel, was rushed to the military hospital Thursday with health complications.
There are currently no further details of the reason behind his hospitalization.
On Sept. 4, Karam was sentenced to two years of hard labor after being convicted of collaborating with Israel by providing the intelligence agency Mossad with information about the Free Patriotic Movement, its ally Hezbollah, and the meetings held between the two sides, as well as information about other Lebanese parties in return for money.
Karam, who was charged in August 2010, had his sentence reduced from three to two years hard labor by the presiding military judge. Having already served more than a year behind bars, he was left to serve the remaining 11 months.
Karam returned to Beirut in 2005, accompanying Free Patriotic Movement leader MP Michel Aoun.
