Former Lebanese minister Michel Samaha (C) gestures upon his arrival at his home in the residential neighbourhood of Ashrafieh in Beirut, on January 14, 2016, after a military tribunal ordered his release on bail.
The ex-minister was arrested in August 2012 over allegations that he and Syrian security services chief Ali Mamluk transported explosives and planned attacks and assassinations of political and religious figures in Lebanon.
Michel Samaha would be released in exchange for a bail payment of 150 million Lebanese pounds ($100,000), a judicial source told AFP. / AFP / ANWAR AMRO        (Photo credit should read ANWAR AMRO/AFP/Getty Images) Anwar Amro/AFP/Getty
