Financial Prosecutor Sues CDR, Several Firms over Brissa Dam File

W460

Financial Prosecutor Ali Ibrahim on Monday filed a lawsuit against the state-run Council for Development and Construction and several private companies on charges of wasting public funds in connection with the Brissa Dam project, the National News Agency said.

LBCI television said several corruption-related files will be tackled after Monday’s move.

The TV network said the files pertain to the telecom sector, illegal phone services, customs and cases related to the state’s finances.

The development comes amid unprecedented, nationwide and cross-sectarian protests that have gripped Lebanon since October 17, demanding a complete overhaul of a political system deemed inefficient and corrupt.

Nobody will get condemned, this is just to calm down protesters... it’s unrealistic. The companies involved in this Dam case are linked to Mustaqbal, I know this because my cuz is high up in one of them. (Let’s not name anyone for privacy’s sake).

This project was a natural disaster from the start and needs to be stopped in it's track and then deal with the illegal activity and money theft that occurred. For the love of god and country can these clowns stop provide lip service to the population, do they the people are that stupid...

How about getting prosecutors from an international body instead of the run of the mill state biased bureaucrats? It would mean more and cause less friction so people wouldn't think it was one sect vs another.

But it is, they’re settling the score with the Sunni because hariri gave up. Last week it was the investigations for the mikatis and now this file. Targeting equally corrupt Christians, Druze, and Shia is a must to quell the sectarian aspect .... because this is rightfully perceived as a vendetta. All must go down, all ya3ne all!
