Discours et Textes, Samir Geagea

The army intelligence service was reported Friday to have arrested two more Lebanese Forces activists as a military magistrate rejected a writ to free Samir Geagea’s political advisor Toufic Hindi on bail.
The two new detainees were identified as Fadi Shamati and Saud Abu Shibl. Their families reported their arrest to Patriarch Nasrallah Sfeir in Diman on Thursday.

Shamati, who lives in Batroun, was summoned to the intelligence center at the Kubbi military barracks in Tripoli. Abu Shibl was summoned to the intelligence center in Sarab before they were both taken to the defense ministry in Yarze Wednesday night.

The intelligence bureau gave no reason for the new arrests, the first since army’s crackdown on the LF and Gen. Aoun’s Free Patriotic Movement Aug. 7.
