Ministry of Communications: Theft of public property

Thefts, whose rate has risen dramatically in Lebanon, which is witnessing an unprecedented financial-economic crisis, are not limited to cars and motorcycles, but have gone beyond them in the past months to affect public property, which has exacerbated the crises facing the Lebanese people.

Today, it is Ogero’s turn to steal equipment belonging to the executive hand of the Ministry of Communications, most notably cables, batteries and generators, which affects the services provided by the authority, as a result of the absence of budgets and funds needed to purchase replacement parts.

To shed light on this problem, Imad Kreidieh, the Chairman of the Board of Directors and General Manager of the Ogero Authority, joined us by phone:
First of all, since when did you start facing the problem of theft of communications equipment?
You, as Ogero, raised your voice, and warned you of the aggravation of thefts. Was there a response from the Ministry of Interior or officials?
