BEIRUT, Lebanon, Jan. 15 (UPI) -- A Lebanese military judge issued an arrest warrant and demanded the death penalty Tuesday for an army defector who allegedly spied for Israel, officials said.

Military Investigative Judge Imad Zein convicted Lt. Col. Daher Jarjoui of "maintaining contact with the Israeli enemy and meeting [Israeli] agents between 2005 and 2006."

Jarjoui was the Lebanese army's liaison with the Spanish branch of the U.N. Interim Force in Lebanon, The Daily Star reported. He allegedly fled to Israel in 2009.
