DAMASCUS, Dec. 12 (Xinhua)-- Damascus' first Attorney-General Mohammed Marwan al-Loji has issued three arrest warrants in absentia against two Lebanese parliamentarians, accusing them of sending weapons to rebels in Syria, state-run SANA new agency said Wednesday.

Al-Loji issued the three arrest warrants against Saad al-Hariri and Oqab Saqr as well as a Syrian, Loai al-Mikdad, the spokesman of the rebels "Free Army."

He added the public prosecution was informed about the telephone records which revealed the involvement of al-Hariri and Saqr in providing money and arms to the terrorists in Syria.

In a statement carried by SANA, Loji also said that "the crimes committed by these people are terrorist ones and those involved are terrorists, which make them liable to the international law on terrorism."

He urged Lebanon to hand them over to the Syrian authorities to be prosecuted.

He added that the Public Prosecution continues collecting evidence and follows up on what has been revealed regarding any statements or recorded phone calls.

Meanwhile, Lebanese National Agency announced Tuesday that the Interpol at the Lebanese Interior Security received via web arrest warrants from the Syrian Judicial authorities against al-Hariri, Saqr and al-Mikdad on charges of arming the rebels.

The Interpol will refer the arrest warrants to the Special General Prosecution, the report said.
