After the national anthem, dr. Al-Aliyah said: “This is the third press conference, because it is usual for the employee not to hold a press conference, but the conditions are imposed because the price of silence is more expensive than the price. of speaking, therefore we prefer to speak. ”

He added: “The first press conference was on November 19, 2020, entitled” In Defense of the Lebanese Administration and Its Supervisory Institutions. “

The second press conference was held on April 13, 2021, entitled “The corrupt fear criminal investigation, while the innocent applaud it.” This saying was taken from His Excellency President Michel Aoun.

Today’s conference is the third, entitled “There is no state without administration, no administration without supervisory bodies, and no administration and supervisory bodies without judiciary” as a protector, incubator and authority in and of itself and stable.

He continued: “In today’s conference we have two divisions: the first is the transfer of tender management to become, in implementation of Act 244 of 29 July 2021, the Public Procurement Authority. The second section, which I will talk about at the beginning, is a decision issued by the Shura Council on May 26, 2022, invalidating an auction held by the State Shura Council in the Al-Ajla District in 2017 approved, and revised in August 2017.

Al-Aliyah pointed out that what is remarkable about the decision, of which the tender department has not yet been informed, is that it is attributed to the tender department which he calls “inaction”. I would like to emphasize that in the course of commenting on a judicial decision, and we are much more keen on the judiciary than they expect, and commenting on the judicial decision is a right as long as it is issued in the name of the Lebanese people , and therefore we have the right to see why this decision has been postponed, from 2017 to today, before a new auction is held. For the Duty Free in particular on July 14, 2022, weeks before the new auction, weeks before the new auction, and we have the right to ask a question mark. The third big question is that the tender administration with its current employees and its head will change in the Public Procurement Authority on 29 July. ”

He said: “As this issue is very dangerous at the level of public finances, I apologize to every citizen who can not ensure a livelihood, every employee who can not reach his workplace, and for every patient who uses herbal medicine because he can not buy medicine, especially cancer patients, and if we do not talk about This issue will continue the situation that brought us to the bottom of the abyss as long as the administration and the judiciary are somewhere subject to politicians, we should not think of supporting any party or any funds, the money came to Lebanon from the nineties to today, it flowed but it does not exist now because there was no administration Independent and impartial for projects in which funds were spent in the absence of the fifth and most frightening role of the judiciary in the face of all those exposed to world money and the interests of the state, and for that we can not remain silent y not.

He continued: “Weeks before the entry into force of the Public Procurement Act, someone came to write that the tender administration had failed, as he said the tender administration had given conflicting statements. He did not say where and when? The strangest thing is that he issued the charge without my knowledge, as he spread the accusation to the media, at a time when the Shura council is invalidating administrative decisions and not the evaluation of control activities, and therefore 3 papers are on spread the media and the title “The Shura Council condemns the management of tenders” tells of lack of action by the tender administration.

He added: “Let anyone come and say that a file has been in the tender administration for one month and not years, then he has the right to accuse us of lack of action, and today the rabbit made two decisions, which means that the decision is final. “

He stressed that “the administrative judge is looking after the interests of the Lebanese state,” saying: “There are conditions for the invalidation of contracts, and under these conditions is that there is no interference with the rights of the state.”

If this decision is not retried, the company that decided to invalidate the contract can say that they will repay me the difference between the amount paid in 2017 and the amount I paid over five years. ”

He continued: “The other possibility is that it is possible for the company that was wrongfully excluded, according to the Shura Council, to claim compensation for a profit over a period of 5 years, amounting to $ 500 million on the state “either because of ignorance or to go with someone, and we are at the bottom of the abyss. Without knowing where we are going.”

He said: “Politicians should take those they like to serve in the administration to their homes, and service should not be at the expense of the people’s interest.”

He stressed, “The situation is no longer bearable. We are in exceptional circumstances. We have not announced the strike, but it is impossible for us to reach our workstations. In our administration, employees still receive a salary of one fifty thousand. ” If you find conflicting statements, it does not mean a lack of action, a lack of knowledge of the administration or that it misleads the exhibitors, and in this case you can not condemn, but rather turn the matter to the Financial Public Prosecution. “

He said: “You, Your Honor, the judge, can not deduce lack of action from false statements, because lack of action is the result of withholding work, while giving false statements is a negative act, and if you have data, why have you grown on them since 2017 until today. Go to the competent judiciary, you can not condemn an ​​administration that does its job, and the big story. We have been saying since May 26 that we have not been informed of the decision that attributes failure to our administration, leading to mistrust in our administration. ”

He added: “I have appealed to the Minister of Justice that if there is no retrial regarding this decision, it will place financial burdens on the Lebanese state, and I also have a letter to the Business Authority in sent to the Ministry of Justice, which is supposed to represent the rights of the state. ” “I also sent a book through the head of the Central Inspectorate, and I say it in public, I, Jan Ali, will distribute the contents of the book to the media, and it is not confidential.”

And he declared: “We, as a tender administration and as a citizen, reserve our full rights to sue the custodians of the cases that are supposed to represent exclusively the state, and which will involve criminal legal responsibilities.”

He said: “From 2012 I have been in the Tender Department until 2017. The Business Authority in the Ministry of Justice, when the name of the Tender Department is received, sends us the review so that we can respond to it. Because she’s the state attorney. There has been a review in the Shura board since 2017, in which an interested party is the tender manager, asking the investor about the security and economic conditions and studying the risks. Today he is asking about the judicial circumstances, and if the Shura Council speaker changes, the decisions will not change unless the one that Judge Shukri issued removed from the presidency of the Shura Council was the one who committed the offense, and I say if I rule nothing. ”

He continued: “The era of darkness is over and the era of light has begun, and this book will be announced before the media and on my responsibility, in accordance with the right of access to information. And more than such a scandal , we want an independent judiciary, not a law enforcement court. ”

He said: “The verdict was issued on May 26, and the Business Authority sent it to the Ministry of Works and I forgot about the Tenders Department. And the adviser’s review is scheduled for June 3, 2022, which means after the verdict is issued, and it will be with the Minister of Justice who is responsible for managing the administrative facility for the work of the judiciary.

He continued: “He who has two ears, let him hear. Whoever is subject to tender management, whatever it is, will be answered. Whoever faces the original will not be afraid of tools, whoever applies the law frightens others, but whoever jumps above the law is afraid of the human employee. You have a problem with someone to solve. There is an administration that is still “on its feet” in the Lebanese state. It is the Tender Department that has not entered politics or sectarianism and biased quotas in it, therefore they have “dissolved from its name.”

You accuse her of lack of action. Any judicial ruling based on falsified statements amounts to false accusations. If you have conflicting statements, go to the competent court and do not invalidate the contract immediately. ”

And the attic concluded: “This situation is unacceptable, yes, the employee does not speak to the media, but until you get me to my workplace, give me my rights, prevent attacks on the tender management and leave the bodies required to to protect the rights of citizens, then I will not speak to the media. ”
