RCPL, a Canadian registered non-profit organization promoting human rights and democratic values in Lebanon, is impressed with signs that leading Lebanese politicians are considering liquidating the media assets. As stated in the words of the Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, it is abnormal that leading politicians owned television and newspaper media because it is detrimental to democracy. 
RCPL
encourages the Lebanese leadership to promote such democratic values, and enact laws to prevent majority ownership of media by politicians and national media concentrations.

August 06, 2002

 

After the brutal murder by Ahmed Mansour of 8 civilians in the ministry of education, the Lebanese government attempted to shut down LBCI for reporting the event with quotes from public witnesses stating the murderer targeted certain confessions. RCPL deplores state interferences in media reports as attempts to oppress freedom of expression. The Lebanese government must respect all forms of freedom of expression that do not spread hatred and reflect reality in an objective manner.

RCPL is concerned about the amount of weapons in the hand of non-governmental individuals and organizations, which threatens Lebanese citizens, the state of law and global security. The Lebanese government must take immediate actions to disarm such individuals and organizations while allowing all movements to operate within Lebanese law as socio-political movements, and not substitutes to the government. These list of individuals and organizations is long, and includes renegade individuals, Palestinian refugee camps and Hizbullah.

RCPL is highly concerned that the recently released results by the Scientific Research Center's Oceanology Institute (financed by the Mediterranean Action Plan of the UN Environmental Program), because they demonstrate an unacceptable level of pollution in the sea surrounding Lebanon. The Lebanese government must assume a more prominent role in monitoring sea, land and air pollution. Current levels of pollution in Lebanon are hazardous to the health of its citizens and the well-being of the country.
