“Sawt Beirut International” news bulletin for Friday, July 23, 2021

In today’s news bulletin:

  • Will Najib Miqati meet with Hezbollah interest?
  • Fuels is missing and all vital sectors are in danger. Have we touched the bottom yet?
  • On the eve of the first anniversary of the Beirut massacre, what are the victims’  families preparing for?

Who would believe that the process of assigning a prime minister has turned to reach former Prime Minister Najib Mikati? Who would believe that while the Lebanese, Arabs and the world, are looking for a man with a good reputation, the mafia will present Najib Mikati, over all other options.

So let the members of the system remember that Mikati, built his basic wealth in the early nineties of the last century, when he was awarded a contract to build one of my cellular networks in Lebanon. So far the story is normal, but it becomes unusual when we know that Mikati did not cost himself and his company a single lira, but rather speculated $500 for each willing to participate to build the network. He was able to impose this because he is the spoiled son of the Syrian regime in Lebanon, and because he is the main partner of the militias who seized power at the time.

Let the members of the system also remember that Mikati, his family and his entourage benefited from ten housing loans backed by large sums to buy luxury apartments.

Be positive. Mikati, who is considered one of the richest people in the Arab region and the world, uses his authority to benefit from housing loans he takes from the way of those in need. Can such a man be trustworthy? Is such an official able to run the country? Is this a personal profile qualified to head the government after the October 17?

What is happening is a crime in every sense of the word against Lebanon and the Lebanese people. So, Honorable Representatives, know one thing: Whoever names Mikati on Monday will be considered a partner in a major crime called the assassination of what remains of hope for Lebanon’s future. Do you want to add to your records a new crime whose title is delivering Mikati once again to prime ministry? The judgment day isn’t far away.
