The media office of the Minister of Energy and Water, Walid Fayyad, issued the following statement:
Whereas the Ministry of Energy and Water was attacked two weeks ago with sabotage of its contents and exposure of officials and employees, and whereas the Minister of Energy Walid Fayyad was attacked in the middle of the street on Sunday night.
This blatant attack is being carried out in the name of senior Lebanese officials and all security services, and the Minister of Energy and Water intends to launch a personal prosecution against everyone who incited, monitored, planned, and contributed to it.
Arresting the aggressor or aggressors is not enough. Rather, he must be punished in the name of the Lebanese people to prevent a new attack. People’s dignity, regardless of their location, is not dependent on anyone, especially to unruly groups that transcend all laws, norms, morals and human values, claiming to speak falsely in the name of the Lebanese people.
