Rahi urges politicians to stop damaging reputation of central bank

Maronite Patriarch Cardinal Mar Bechara Boutros Rahi presided over Sunday mass, saying: “It is not acceptable to accept practices that undermine constitutional institutions, and it is unacceptable to overthrow the independence, prestige and dignity of the judiciary, and some judges lose their independence.”

He added: “We support holding all corrupt people accountable, not picking someone and holding them accountable for the practices that took place over the past 30 years.”

Rahi stressed the importance of holding the parliamentary elections on time, saying: “Let the deputies remember that they are entrusted by the people and they are not entitled to renew their mandate without the permission of the people.”

Finally, Rahi called on the political officials by saying: “Stop fabricating news, rumors, abuse, revenge, hatred, and harming the reputation of Lebanon, the Lebanese currency, the central bank, the army, and the judiciary.”
