High school and university student protests continued across the country, with demonstrations taking place in front of the American University of Beirut, the Lebanese American University, and Notre-Dame University among others. The Ministry of Education also witnessed a sit-in by protestors.
Protests persisted in front of public electricity provider Électricité du Liban and Telecoms companies MTC Touch and Alfa, as well as the Zouk Thermal Station and the Court of Audit in Verdun.
Protestors also staged demonstrations in front of ex-Prime Minister Fouad Sanioura and former Minister of Interior Nohad Al Machnouk’s houses.
Caretaker Prime Minister Saad Hariri met with President Michel Aoun to discuss government formation following his meeting with Free Patriotic Movement leader MP Gebran Bassil a few days ago.
Sanioura was also questioned by Attorney General Ali Ibrahim in regards to $11bln in state funds spent during his tenure as prime minister and minister of finance. His office later issued a statement stating that the money was spent legally.
Attorney General Ibrahim also pressed charges against General Director of Customs Badri Daher following his misuse of public funds.
