On Sunday, the Parliamentary Integrity Committee called on the government to prevent all ministers referred to interrogation from traveling by Parliament, stating that the committee formed in the investigation of the Ministry of Electricity's files had reached important leads.
Committee member Alia Nassif said in a statement to "Information" that "the Prime Minister is required to issue a decision prohibiting the travel of any minister around whom suspicions of corruption are raised, or his interrogation has been accepted by Parliament pending confirmation of the allegations."
Nassif added, “The Parliamentary Committee on the Ministry of Electricity has reached important leads and will present it to the judiciary, while there is information regarding the submission by Minister of Electricity Louay al-Khatib of contracts in favor of deputies to keep silent on corruption files.”
She explained that "the dismissal of the government and its transformation into the conduct of business prevented the completion of the interrogation, while all the files will be transferred to the judiciary to take the necessary action."
