Brunswick man jailed in Lebanon will remain under creditor protection for a few
more weeks.

His
lawyer, Bob Creamer, says the court found that the companies are acting in good
faith and with due diligence.

Tepper
has spent the past eight months in a Beirut prison.

He was
detained under an international arrest warrant over allegations that he exported
rotten potatoes to Algeria in 2007.

His
family and lawyers are hoping the federal government can do something to secure
his release.
