The political responses that reject the judge Ali Ibrahim’s decision against the Lebanese banks continued.
President Saad Hariri tweeted, through his account on Twitter: “The Financial Prosecutor Ali Ibrahim’s decision is an unpopular populist political message, not on the level of the rights of depositors, young and old, and on the level of the trust of friends and siblings in Lebanon.”
He said in a second tweet: “Putting a hand on the banks in the way that was announced, a coup against the economic system and a step that brings Lebanon back to the time of totalitarian regimes.”
To that, she considered a member of the “Future” bloc, Representative Dima Jamali, in a tweet via “Twitter” that Judge Ibrahim’s decision today is dangerous in terms of trying to change the free economic system of Lebanon and puts banks in the face of people and unjustly holds them the consequences of the mistakes of the political system that incurred the state with all these debts .
In turn, member of the “Future” bloc MP Nazih Najm asked in a tweet via Twitter: “Does the situation today and the current time bear decisions that threaten the banking sector? What about the relationship with correspondent banks that will deliberately react to Lebanese banks after the decision?” Judicial? “
He said: “The situation is getting more accurate, as the government tends not to pay, and also it has not begun to negotiate, so what is the solution? What about the consequences of failure to pay if it happens?”
To this, Rep. Neama Afram tweeted, “We are trying to protect the money of depositors in banks. We must not break Lebanon’s economic, social and financial model. The most responsible of what we have reached today remains the twisted practices of the political class since 1992. Why adopt easier solutions always Avoid adopting real reforms? Beware … beware ruin. “
For his part, Deputy Brigadier-General Jean Talouzian said on his account on Twitter: “The decision of Judge Ali Ibrahim is a coup against the constitution and the free system in Lebanon.
Changing the system and transforming it into a system similar to that of police states cannot be accomplished by a decision taken by anyone, but rather requires a national consensus.
In the context, member of the “Democratic Gathering Bloc” MP Wael Abu Faour declared in a statement: “We are not a fan of the historical Lebanese economic model, but rather one of the strongest historical opponents of it, but we are not with selective, ill-considered measures that may lead to further financial and economic collapse and the loss of rights.” Citizens and depositors, not with the flame ball throws and the exchange of responsibilities, but with real and thoughtful reform and fair judicial procedures against everyone who dared to public money. “
He concluded: “It seems that some people find in the matter an opportunity to turn Lebanon into a model of estrangement with the entire world.”
Likewise, Representative Hadi Abu Al-Hassan tweeted through his account on Twitter, so he wrote: “Why is targeting the banking system that constitutes one of the pillars of the economy and which accommodates more than 20,000 employees as well as hundreds of thousands of depositors’ accounts? What does it mean to hit this pillar while the state is dying? And suspicious projects are again coming to their head, where are you taking Lebanon? With our respect for the judiciary, but the matter is suspicious. ”
