Local daily Al-Akhbar was ordered Tuesday to pay a symbolic LL1,000 in damages to both the American University of Beirut and the Lebanese Forces, after the newspaper was found to have slandered these parties in two separate cases. The Beirut Publications Court, headed by Judge Rox Rizk, fined Al-Akhbar Editor in Chief Ibrahim al-Amin and the author of an article published Nov. 14, 2014, for slander and defamation. Judge Rizk also fined the paper and its director-general for slander, libel, defamation and publishing fake news after a lawsuit was brought against Al-Akhbar by the Lebanese Forces and its chief Samir Geagea.
