Sheikh Pierre Daher
Beirut – Georges Chahine
Lebanese Broadcasting Corporation International (LBCI) Chairman Sheikh Pierre Daher has denied the news reported on Al-Shiraa website which stated that he was travelling with Samaha and al-Sayyed. The news report said:“It was discovered that there was a third passenger in the car which transported Michel Samaha and Jamil al-Sayyed. The car was loaded with explosives sent by the Syrian war criminal Ali Mamlouk to cause a sectarian strife in Lebanon, which would draw the attention away from the massacres committed by the monster Assad against the Syrian people The third passenger was Pierre Daher, the Chairman of LBCI.”
In the statement issued by his office, Daher denounced the smudge campaign, qualifying the site’s actions as "unethical and malicious, with a sole purpose to smear the name of LBCI."
The statement went on: “It reflects deliberate attempts to demean the name of the channel in hopes of detouring it from its vocational independence. These attacks are of a judicial and trade dispute background.”
