In Beirut, 80% of the governmental cameras are inoperable. The state spent more than $40 million on the arrangement to deploy the cameras. The State of Quotas did not contemplate requiring the obliged enterprise to continue its maintenance and the durability of its work in the arrangement.
The street monitor lenses’ power is turned off. Many cameras had their batteries taken, allowing them to continue operating. A handful of additional cameras were repurposed into roadside ornaments. Thieves and robbers have free access to the roads. According to the legislation, the security forces’ role is confined to defending the public sector.
