Gemayel Objects to Environment Ministry's Budget Allocation

Kataeb leader Samy Gemayel on Tuesday said that there is no point in allocating a budget to the Environment Ministry, citing the tremendous destruction that it has caused to the country.

"The most dangerous project carried out by the Ministry of Environment was the establishment of waste landfills without studying their environmental impact beforehand," Gemayel said during the Finance and Budget Committee meeting aimed at discussing the 2019 draft budget.

“So why a budget is being allocated to this ministry?” he asked.

“It would be pointless to allocate a budget to a ministry that has been destroying the environment with landfills, sand and gravel quarries, as well as sea waste dumping," Gemayel stressed.
