Maronite Patriarch: Blind Officials Causing People's Misery

Maronite Patriarch Bechara al-Rahi criticized the "blind" politicians who are causing the people's misery, saying that they are turning a blind eye to the growing needs of the Lebanese.

“Those politicians are only seeing their own interests, being careless towards the economic, financial and social crises facing the country,” al-Rahi said in his Sunday sermon.

The Patriarch deplored the failure to introduce any tangible reforms one year after the CEDRE conference, warning that negligence and delay are gnawing at Lebanon’s reputation, credibility and transparency in front of the international community.

“Fighting corruption remains at the heart of these reforms, provided that it starts targeting the top and down until the base, and that it halts the squandering of public funds in all its forms,” he stressed.
