REPORT: Minister Derbas files lawsuit against protester Tarek Mallah
Lebanon News
Social Affairs Minister Rashid Derbas told the state-run National News Agency on Tuesday that some protesters attacked his vehicle and verbally harassed him in downtown Beirut.
 
He also told the agency that he filed a lawsuit against a person identified as Tarek Mallah.
 
“These were not protesters, there were a group of 15 who did not only attack me, but also attacked passers-by,” Minister Derbas added.
 
Earlier, civil society activists proceeded with their campaign against the Lebanese government and officials who have failed to resolve the pressing waste issue, in a sustainable, eco-friendly manner.
 
Mallah is known for bringing to light the issue of sexual harassment and molestation against minors at Dar al-Aytam al-Islammiya orphanage.  However, the ministry failed to launch investigations into the allegations and instead dismissed Mallah's claims as lies.
