Abuse of Power

In yesterday’s parliamentary meeting aldyar news paper reported that ex-minister of Interior Michelle el Murr confessed that his closing of MTV in 2000 was a self defense action. He further confessed that MTV being his electoral opponent in the Meten elections meant that MTV was an adversary and had to be closed.

This story makes me ask the following questions:

• Isn’t what MP Murr said a clear confession on his abuse of power?
• Why aren’t there procedures that allow us to sue any governmental official abusing his power?
• Till when will the politicians in Lebanon put their personal interests above that of the community?
• Till when will Lahoud and Murr and the like continue these hideous acts?

In the end, I believe that we are living in the virtual reality TV show “Alwady”, with a major difference, we have Lahoud instead of Haifa as the main attraction.
