Former minister Wiam Wahhab was fined by a Beirut court 10 million LL for “distributing fabricated news that disturbed the general peace” and directed him to pay an additional one million each to Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea and Simon al-Hajj as a compensation, National News Agency (NNA) reported.

The decision came in response to a law suit filed by Geagea and Hajj after Wahhab said on New TV and Al-Manar TV that the LF is conducting weapons training in the Chouf under the supervision of the Progressive Socialist Party.

Wahab, a staunch ally of Hezbollah and Syria has been actively campaigning against the Special Tribunal for Lebanon( STL) . Today he said : If the international efforts to target Lebanon through the STL and targeting the resistance ( Hezbollah) continue, then we will definitely take a position and harsh measures against all who cooperate with them.
