In an issued statement this afternoon, the Lebanese Forces Party denied all reports that Labor Minister Kamil Abu Slaiman has retracted "the measures he had taken to regulate foreign labor in Lebanon, including Palestinian labor," deeming them as "false, fabricated news."
The statement stressed that the Minister of Labor is continuing to implement his adopted measures in this respect, because the applicable Lebanese laws require him to do so.
The Party reminded that the Labor Minister has repeatedly affirmed, in more than one instance, position and interview, his pursuit of the set plan to implement the Lebanese law.
Moreover, the LF Party deplored "the deliberate misinformation by some media outlets, including Al-Akhbar and OTV," reiterating that "the news is completely groundless and that the Minister of Labor's plan is ongoing."
