Published October 23rd, 2003 - 02:00 GMT

It was published on Thursday that a Lebanese citizen has been held by Israel in so-called "administrative detention" for the past year, after having served five years in prison.  


The Lebanese, Ibrahim Abu-Zeid, a Christian, was sentenced to five years in prison after being convicted of membership in Hizbullah, Haaretz.  


Abu-Zeid was released about one year ago, but the Israeli army issued a decree placing him in the category of "illegal combatants."
