BEIRUT — A high-ranking judicial source told L'Orient Le-Jour on Monday that the manager and collection manager of KVA, the service provider company for Electricité du Liban (EDL), "were released last week pending further investigation."
KVA is a consortium of three companies specializing in the management of public utilities. Its offices were sealed with red wax and its manager and collection manager were arrested on Aug. 24 following a decision issued by Financial Prosecutor Judge Ali Ibrahim on the basis of alleged meter tampering, a judicial source told L’Orient Today at the time.
A judicial source also told L'Orient Today at the time that “the company is a private company contracted with the government and has not been doing its role. It’s also tasked with the maintenance of utilities belonging to EDL and the company has not been doing so.”
On Monday, the high-ranking judicial source added that "the manager of the company will be audited tomorrow regarding the violations of which he is accused."
