Hariri ‘Doesn’t Object’ that Judicial Authorities Follow-up Actions of Nahhas
Caretaker Prime Minister Saad Hariri has urged the judicial authority to follow-up the attempt by Caretaker Telecommunications Minister Charbel Nahhas “to put his hands on the third telecommunications network,” a statement released by his press office said.
Hariri stressed that “he doesn’t object that the competent judicial authority takes up this issue to determine why the Minister of Telecommunications overruled the decisions of the Council of Ministers,” said the press release.
He said that the judicial authority has to find out “the party to which Minister Nahhas wants to deliver the network to, outside the control of the Lebanese state and without its knowledge.”
“Nahhas tried to remove it from the control of legal authorities without any legal justification,” the PM added.
Earlier Thursday, Hariri held contacts with President Michel Suleiman, caretaker Interior Minister Ziad Baroud and the concerned security, judicial and military authorities, to follow up on the issue, the press release said.
