Reports: Military Court Summons Geagea over Tayyouneh Clashes

The Military Court has summoned Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea to hear his testimony over the deadly Tayyouneh clashes, media reports said on Thursday.

Al-Jadeed TV said the move comes in light of “the confessions of the detainees.”

“Geagea’s summoning came after very advanced discussions, which included talk of summoning other officials and leaders concerned with the Tayyouneh incident to also hear their testimonies,” al-Jadeed added.

The TV network added that State Commissioner to the Military Court Judge Fadi Akiki ordered the testimony but said that it should be in the Military Court.

Maarab meanwhile said that Geagea has not received the summons, noting that he will comment on the move in his TV interview on Thursday evening.
