Hakim: Corruption Can't Be Fought Through Threats and Political Bickering

Former Minister Alain Hakim on Sunday stressed that the party's opposition is absolute and staunch when it comes to issues related to Lebanon's sovereignty and freedom, while it is open and constructive when dealing with livelihood problems.

In an interview on Voice of Lebanon radio station, Hakim said the country is experiencin a complete decline into a state of non -sovereignty, stressing that Kataeb party doesn’t consent to anything that goes against its values.

The Kataeb politburo member cast doubt about the real motives behind the anti-corruption campaign that some political forces are claiming to be undertaking, adding that those are underestimating the Lebanese citizens' intelligence.

“There is a scientific and logical way to fight corruption. There are many plans adopted by several countries that can be applied in Lebanon,” he noted.

“Corruption is not fought through threats, outbidding and political bickering on the media. It is only eradicated through a real will, and an independent judicial system that has nothing to do with retaliatory actions."
