The Presidency’s media office on Monday slammed illness “rumors” and assured that President Michel Aoun is in perfect good health.
In a statement, the press office urged against “fabricating cheap rumors through social media about President Michel Aoun’s health.”
It added that such “rumors only aim to trigger deliberate confusion in the country and spread anxiety in the hearts of citizens.”
The statement vowed “that security and judicial measures will be taken against perpetrators.”
Media reports circulated recently on social media that Aoun was seriously ill.
In a bid to refute the rumors, MP Ibrahim Kanaan of Aoun’s Free Patriotic Movement published a video recording of himself and Aoun taking a walk in the Presidential Palace’s garden on Monday.
