Discours et Textes, Samir Geagea

Lebanese Forces commander Samir Geagea has requested a physical checkup by two doctors to determine whether his health condition would allow him to do certain exercises in his prison cell at the Defense Ministry Compound in Yarze, An Nahar reported on Tuesday. It said Geagea made the request through his defense attorneys to State Prosecutor Adnan Addoum, who promptly gave his approval provided the checkup is conducted at Geagea’s personal expense.

The doctors Geagea wants are Fayez Abil Lama, of St. Georges Hospital, and sports specialist Ziad Harb. An Nahar quoted judicial sources as saying Geagea walks an hour a day in a prison courtyard.
In another Geagea-related development, the chairman of the Beirut Bar Association Selim Osta was given a permit by Addoum to visit the LF commander at 11 a.m. Wednesday. Osta said he would inspect Geagea’s current prison conditions, An Nahar reported.

Geagea has already served 10 years in solitary confinement out of jail sentences totaling 120 years.
