Saba Demands Accountability as Zahle River Turns Red

The residents of Zahle were shocked on Saturday to see an alarming sight in their long-celebrated Bekaa city: a bright red Berdawni River.

People there are used to hearing many excuses about the reason behind the dyed water, while they know very well its origin and the reality behind it.

The Kataeb's candidate for the Greek Orthodox seat in Zahle, Charles Saba, wondered why the financial prosecutor and the relevant judicial authorities in Bekaa haven't taken any action so far, adding that anyone who is suspected of polluting the river should be questioned.

“It is time for Wissam Tannoury, head of the Qaa al-Rim municipality and owner of the Mimosa plant, to pay attention to his own health and ours, as well as to his economy and ours,” Saba wrote on Twitter.
