Sayegh: Kataeb Mulling International Judicial Action Against Authority's Environmental Crime

Kataeb's Second Deputy-President Salim Sayegh on Friday warned that the party is mulling the option of resorting to international courts to report the state's "environmental crime" caused by its reckless approach in dealing with the waste crisis in Lebanon.

"We are considering the option of alerting the international community over the environmental disaster that Lebanon is witnessing. A clean environment is one of the basic human rights," Sayegh told Al-Markazia news agency.

"What is happening is a blatant violation of this right."

Sayegh said that the ruling authority has gone beyond the limits of corruption, saying that its decisions amount to an "organized crime".

"Resorting to the international community has become the only way to resist this authority's acts and to put environmental criminals to account.

Sayegh said that Lebanon is being ruled by one party, even if it consists of different factions, adding that this governing party is irritated by the opposition's anti-corruption campaign.
