NNA - "The parliament's approval of the tax law is driven by the need to secure the required imports for the treasury and to cover the cost of enforcing the salary scale," the Loyalty to the Resistance bloc said in a statement issued after its periodic meeting at its headquarters in Haret Hreik.


"However, this does not exempt the government from its responsibility to fight against corruption and tax evasion. It is its duty to reconsider its economic approach and the comprehensive tax policy on the basis of scientific and fair standards that contribute to the achievement of national solidarity, strong economy and sustainable development," the bloc said.
