Kataeb MP Elias Hankache on Friday stressed that the economic plan will effectively begin by frankly telling the Lebanese that their money are no longer in banks, saying that no one has the right to control the depositors’ funds.
“Stolen money must be restored and perpetrators should be prosecuted especially those who have taken certain random decisions in the past years,” Hankache told Al-Anbaa newspaper,
Hankache stressed the need to implement some serious reforms that would finally address the issue of the electricity, tax evasion and mass unemployment, saying that the basis of success lies in holding early parliamentary elections that would reproduce power.
“The government has to make some brave decisions if it really wants to pull Lebanon out of this crisis,” he said.
“It is not allowed for the government for example to wait for Hezbollah's opinion on the issue of financial appointments and the International Monetary Fund to make its decisions, calls and choices,” he added.
