Head of Bakery Syndicate announces resignation: I will not be false witness

The head of the Arab Bakeries Syndicate in Beirut and Mount Lebanon, Ali Ibrahim, announced his resignation, explaining in a statement, “After the recurring crises in the loaf industry escalated, and the owners of bakeries were held responsible for these crises, which led to the humiliation of people in front of bakeries that need flour to secure a loaf of bread for citizens, I cannot be a false witness to what is happening in this sector, at a time when I can no longer do anything to protect the honorable bakery owners who bear the brunt of these crises in the absence of any logical solution that preserves the rights of all. Therefore, I announce my resignation from my position as president of the Bakeries Syndicate in Beirut and Mount Lebanon.”

The head of the Syndicate of Bread Industry Owners in Lebanon, Antoine Seif, explained that “the cause of the crisis is the cessation of a number of mills from work and the coming of the festive period without securing stocks for the bakeries.”
