On what basis judiciary filed its new claim against Geagea?

On October 14, 2021, Hezbollah supporters decided to invade Ain al-Rummaneh

It is known that the government’s commissioner to the military court, Judge Fadi Akiki, is the son-in-law of Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri. What is also known, is that on the 16th of this month, the defense attorneys, in the file of Ain al-Rummaneh invasion, filed a complaint before the judicial inspection against Akiki, requesting that he be dismissed from the file, but the aforementioned judge evaded the notification. Forces sources indicated that Judge Akiki is staying home, and deliberately not attending the military court, to ensure that he will not be dismissed from the file.

So, what are the new facts that Berri’s son-in-law relied on in his new claim against the head of the Lebanese Forces Party, Samir Geagea?

As for the four detainees, who are from Ain El-Remmaneh, and affiliated with the Lebanese Forces, they are still till now, languishing in detention without trial.

And thus, it seems that the Shiite duo and their successor, the government commissioner to the military court, Fadi Akiki, are trying to fabricate a new file for Geagea, less than two months away from the date of the parliamentary election, so, are we heading for further escalation on the ground and in the judiciary?
