Israeli-Arab political activist Amir Makhoul was charged on Thursday with espionage, assisting an enemy at a time of war and maintaining contact with an enemy agent.

The other suspect in the case, Omar Abdo, was charged with maintaining contact with an enemy agent and transferring information that could be used by the enemy.

Makhoul was recruited as a spy for Hizbullah and transferred, via a specially-designed computer encryption system, strategic intelligence information on Israeli security services to the Lebanese guerrilla organization.
