Hakim Calls for Not Turning Anti-Corruption Fight into 'Witch-Hunt'

Former Minister Alain Hakim on Friday called for not turning the fight against corruption into a "witch-hunt" to settle political and sectarian accounts, stressing the need to leave the Judiciary do its job.

“A clear mechanism must be set out so as to fight corruption,” Hakim told MTV.

The ex-minister said that corruption cannot be eradicated with threats and media propaganda, but rather through three main factors: the will, judicial independence and reformist laws.
