President Michel Aoun shows solidarity with the protesters
Lebanon's President Michel Aoun has showed solidarity with the protesters who have taken to the streets of the country over the past four days.
"What is happening in the streets expresses people's pain, but generalizing corruption against everyone carries big injustice," Aoun said during a cabinet session on Monday.
Aoun added that the government must at least begin by lifting banking secrecy from current and future ministers.
Nationwide protests over the past four days against rising inflation and living costs have rocked the country as the government struggles to attract investment amid increasing economic hardships and a decreasing capital flow to the country. (ILKHA)
