Maronite Patriarch Calls for Revolution amid Rampant Corruption

Maronite Patriarch Bechara al-Rahi blasted the destructive practices of the political class, saying that the alarming economic reports on Lebanon prove the presence of rampant corruption.

There are corrupt officials who are legitimizing corruption and giving the people scraps to keep them silent," Al-Rahi said in an interview with Al-Joumhouria newspaper.
