According to Thursday's verdict, it had been proved that Daher established LBCI with Geagea's "knowledge and approval".Although the court did not rule that there was a sale from Geagea, it said LBC -- previously owned by the LF -- was established using funds raised by the LF's then-militia.Geagea lamented that Jouni confirmed there was no sale to Daher, but still decided to grant him ownership. Geagea has claimed that the LF never relinquished ownership of LBC, testifying in June that the party had only registered the station in Daher's name, just as the party's different media outlets were registered under other names.According to official investigations, before LBCI's establishment in 1992, the LF militia's finances had funded the company, a judicial source told The Daily Star after Thursday's ruling.
