Labaky Says No Need For New Taxes to Fund Salary Scale

Head of the Kataeb's Students and Youth Department, Anthony Labaky, on Monday reiterated that the party stands with the approval of the salary scale, noting, however, that its funding should not entail taxes that would burden people and impoverish them.

“The new taxes will affect people with low or medium income as the VAT would involve both the rich and the poor equally,” Labaky warned via Voice of Lebanon radio station.

“Why does the state resort to new taxes while it can fund the salary scale and other projects by just putting an end to corruption, squandering and shady deals?” Labaky asked.
