Did the Minister of Economy gave his brother authority in the ministry?

The Minister of Economy and Trade Amin Salam was previously a lawyer who worked in LPR company in Washington. His picture showed that he is a handsome young Lebanese man, but we found later that his photo was modified through a photo-editing program.

The Lebanese waited for the day of the handover, but the first shock was that His Excellency brought his family with him to the handover ceremony, starting with his wife and ending with his brother, but the second shock was his story about frogs.

The third shock was on the opening day of Expo 2020 in Dubai, where His Excellency accompanied his brother to the event as well, without knowing the reason, as he denied that he had appointed him to the team of advisors.

But recently Sawt Beirut International learned from private sources that Minister Amin Salam has appointed his brother Karim Salam to supervise the Insurance Control Commission, which was under the supervision of former Minister Raoul Nehme, in a clear violation and without an official appointment because he needs a decision from the Council of Ministers as a whole.

It is known that any communication with the minister passes through his brother. Will the next surprise be the participation of the brother in Lebanon’s negotiations with the International Monetary Fund?
