LF’s Geagea says he was not notified of court request to hear statement over Tayouneh clashes

The leader of Lebanese Forces (LF) party Samir Geagea told MTV on Thursday he was not notified of any Court request to hear his statement over last week’s street violence.

Geagea’s comments were his first after Hezbollah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah launched a scathing verbal attack on him and his LF party in a televised address on Monday.

Hezbollah has accused the LF of being responsible for the violence, an accusation that Geagea has denied.

Geagea said Nasrallah’s speech was “a poisonous present and full of errors and rumors.”
