After he was unfairly discharged from his post as head of Beirut Port's grain silos, Moussa Khoury on Friday renewed his determination to bring this matter to justice, saying that the minister of economy did not abide by the rules and laws when deciding to dismiss him along with five other employees.
Resigned Economy Minister Alain Hakim Tuesday stressed the need for municipalities to take action and assume an effective role in the waste management issue, saying that they should be assisted and provided with the needed funds so as to take the helm. “Trash was all over the streets. We couldn’t carry on with the protest we had started at the Burj Hammoud landfill site,” Hakim told the Central News Agency.
