Food safety in Lebanon: Moral deterrent doesn’t exist among some traders

Public Health Minister, Wael Abu Faour, visited on Wednesday Justice Minister, Ashraf Rifi, at the Ministry of Justice in presence of General Prosecutor, Judge Samir Hammoud.

UnknownAbu Faour said that the meeting majorly focused on the ongoing communications and efforts between the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Justice, and the judicial body, over the best means to fight corruption.

“It’s true that we have launched an anti-corruption campaign, but we must also fight corruption across all the Lebanese state. Anti-corruption means reform, and reform cannot be without the existence of an active judicial body because it is the biggest deterrent. With every food safety campaign, there was an active response from the judiciary. Perhaps things took some time to launch the campaign at the judicial level, but it was finally activated and we are dealing with the major files seriously,” Abou Faour
