BEIRUT: The Lebanese Forces (LF) denied a local newspaper report Friday that the key witness in former Information Minister Michel Samaha’s case, undercover agent Milad Kfouri, has sought sanctuary in Maarab, Kesrouan, near LF leader Samir Geagea's residence.

Quoting a March 8 official, Ad-Diyar daily reported that Kfouri and his companions are staying in Maarab, following an agreement between the LF, the Internal Security Forces (ISF) Information Branch and Qatari intelligence.

“Ad-Diyar’s report is totally wrong and we will file a lawsuit against the newspaper before the appropriate court,” the LF statement said.

Kfouri provided incriminating video footage in the Samaha case. According to media reports, he was flown out of Lebanon sometime before the Aug. 10 police raid on Samaha’s residences in Beirut’s Ashrafieh and Metn’s Khanshara-Jwar, over fears for his safety.

Samaha, who is close to Syrian President Bashar Assad, was arrested Aug. 10 on charges of plotting terror attacks in Lebanon along with Syria’s National Security chief Brig. Gen. Ali Mamlouk and another senior general identified only by the first name of Adnan.
