They were charged with attempting to smuggle around two tons of Captagon pills on their private jet to Saudi Arabia.
Police had launched an investigation into the smuggling case.
Captagon pills had “the typical effects of a stimulant” and produce “a kind of euphoria – you’re talkative, you don’t sleep, you don’t eat, you’re energetic,” according to Lebanese psychiatrist Ramzi Haddad.
The drugs are reportedly the Takfiri “ISIL” militants’ favorite narcotics.
