    بالتفاصيل... هذه هي مقررات جلسة مجلس الوزراء!


    انعقد مجلس الوزراء في جلسة عادية اليوم في السراي الحكومي برئاسة دولة رئيس مجلس الوزراء الدكتور حسان دياب.
    وقد ناقش المجلس جدول الأعمال، وقرّر ما يلي:

    في إطار إجراء التحقيقات لتحديد الحسابات التي أجريت منها تحويلات مالية، تم تكليف وزارة المالية الطلب من مصرف لبنان إعداد لوائح تتضمّن الآتي:

    أولاً: مجموع المبالغ التي جرى تحويلها إلى الخارج اعتباراً من تاريخ 1/1/2019 ولغاية تاريخه مع تبيان نسبة المبالغ التي جرى تحويلها من قبل أفراد يتعاطون الشأن العام وتلك التي حولت لأسباب تجارية.
    ثانياً: مجموع المبالغ التي سحبت نقداً في الفترة عينها المومأ إليها.
    ثالثاً: مجموع المبالغ التي جرى تحويلها في فترة إقفال المصارف استناداً إلى قواعد الامتثال، والتعاميم ذات الصلة.


    وفي الجلسة، عرضت وزيرة العمل مشكلة الصرف المتزايد للعمال في ظل الأزمة الراهنة، وتمنّت الطلب من المصارف ضرورة الالتزام بتعاميم مصرف لبنان 547 و552 التي تسمح للشركات بدفع الرواتب وحاجاتها لاستمرارية العمل.

    كما أقرّ مجلس الوزراء أربعة تدابير آنية وفورية لمكافحة الفساد واستعادة الأموال المتأتّية عنه، وهي:
    1- تفعيل التدقيق الضريبي
    2- التحقيق المحاسبي
    3- تطبيق المادة الخامسة من قانون السرية المصرفية
    4- الرقابة المؤخّرة لديوان المحاسبة

    في موضوع تفعيل التدقيق الضريبي،

    اولا: الطلب الى وزير المالية، تكليف الجهات المختصة في وزارته او من ينتدبه لاجراء تحقيق ضربي يطال جميع الاشخاص الطبيعيين والمعنويين الذين اجروا مع الادارة عقود التزامات او قدموا خدمات دون سند، استتبعت بمصالحات وفقا لأسس تم تحديدها ضمن هذه التدابير.
    ثانيا: الطلب الى وزير المالية تكليف الجهات المختصة في وزارته، او من ينتدبه بالمباشرة الفورية باتخاذ الاجراءات التقنية واللوجستية اللازمة لتبادل المعلومات الضربية استنادا الى اتفاقية التعاون في المجال الضربي، واتفاقية السلطات المختصة، توصلا للحصول على المعلوملت بشكل تلقائي او المعلومات غب الطلب، وهذه كلها مواضيع حول تبادل المعلومات الضريبية، وذلك وصولا الى تحديد الاموال التي ترتب اي تهرب ضريبي وفي حال وجود مخالفات احالة هذه المعلومات الى المراجع الرقابية والقضائية المختصة.

    وفي موضوع التصويت الضربي ايضا تكليف احد اهم المكاتب الدولية المتخصصة في التحقيق المحاسبي للتدقيق في جميع العقود من اي نوع كان سواء مناقصة او التزام او اتفاق بالتراضي والتي اجريت بين الادارة والاشخاص الطبيعيين والمعنويين في قيود وموازنات هؤلاء الاشخاص توصلا الى تحديد اي مكامن للهدر او الغش في الانفاق للمال العام.

    وفي موضوع التدبير الثالث وهو تطبيق المادة الخامسة من قانون السرية المصرفية، الطلب الى جميع الادارات ولاسيما ادارة المناقصات، عند اجراء اي عقد او تلزيم او نفقة تطبيق المادة الخامسة من قانون السرية المصرفية التي تجيز للمتعاقدين الاتفاق مسبقا على رفع السرية المصرفية.

    وفي موضوع التدبير الرابع وهو الرقابة المؤخرة لديوان المحاسبة، يحث مجلس الوزراء ديوان المحاسبة في مجال الرقابة المؤخرة على حسابات الاشخاص الطبيعيين والمعنويين الذين يتلقون من الادارة مساهمات او اموال، او يجرون معها عقودا او التزامات على اعطاء الاولوية لانجاز هذه الرقابة بالنسبة للعقود والتلزيمات بدءا من الاعلى قيمة والتدرج نزولا الى جميع العقود والتلزيمات التي تضمنت انفاقا من المال العام.

    وهناك بعض التدابير الاخرى بانتظار الحصول على بعض الاراء قبل اقرارها بالشكل النهائي.

    أعلنت وزيرة الاعلام الدكتورة منال عبد الصمد نجد اثر انتهاء جلسة مجلس الوزراء أن "المجلس أقر 4 تدابير آنية وفورية لمكافحة الفساد واستعادة الاموال"، وقالت :"كان موضوع جلستنا الخطة المالية وغدا هناك جلسة إستثنائية ونحن في إطار وضع اللمسات الاخيرة على هذه الخطة".

    وبالنسبة لموضوع الغلاء، لفتت عبد الصمد الى ان "وزارة الإقتصاد تتخذ مجموعة من التدابير وموضوع الدولار مرتبط بالسياسة النقدية لمصرف لبنان وسيكون للحكومة دور في ذلك".


    واعتبرت ان "الوضع في الشارع خرج عن إطار المطالب المحقة وهناك بعض المندسين".


    The financial reform plan and controlling the USD exchange rate will make or break this government.

    I think based on these three tweets:
    -France backs the economical/financial gov plan and supports their work.
    -USA saying indirectly let the gov work, not the right time to protest and do chaos, u have Corona stay home.

    But both countries want the IMF to be included in the plan as a condition to help Lebanon.

    Why is no one talking about the fact that at the time those corrupt men smuggled billions out of the country others were not allowed to withdraw their foreign deposits?

    Most people I hear speak about the issue make it seem like the condemnation is solely because these men are suspected to have transferred looted funds. That is not just it. The timing was at a time people couldn't get their money. Why should Salemeh allow thieves to smuggle billions out of Lebanon, while people who worked hard for their foreign currency savings were deprived of their rights to get their money? Isnt that alone a big crime by Salemeh?
    The problem is everyone is acting surprised that people "smuggled" their money outside lebanon, the real problem is not a single deputy proposed a law to make the capital control official. Everyone kept quiet while the banks act on their own will breaking the law by deciding who can use his money and who cannot.

    All this talk about retrieving the names of who transferred abroad is bullshit, because they didn't do anything illegal, on what basis you want to prosecute them ?

    I want the names; for me ; for public knowledge; for political retribution.

    As for the banks while it is legal to transfer money for some privileged super billionaires as you say; however it is illegal to impose informal capital control on everyone else.
    So if we can't prosecute the billionaires; at least we can prosecute the banks!

    BTW there are many legal suits against the banks and they are mostly won ; however in appeal the higher judges are stopping the trials...

    Exactly you're 100% right, They don't need to claim to be waiting for the names they should start persecuting the banks.

    Yesterday, government officially demanded BDL give a full report of bank transfers sent abroad and cash withdrawals, from January 2019 till present day. Laws have been passed to enable the return of the smuggled money. The audit of BDL has been commissioned. There is no deal, and as far as I know Salemeh's conference is still set for today - not that I'm expecting much from it beyond trying to control the damage to his image. Ashraflo to cancel it.

    Removing Salemeh isn't the end goal, here. It's getting dirt on him and everybody else who acted through him for the last few decades.

    There are plenty of ways that information can be key in fighting corruption, other than political accountability. Here's an example:

    Bas the corruption ma2wnane bi lebnen.
    In some cases maybe, but not most. Also, "legal" financial crimes (example, the Hariris' evasion of around $3bil in taxes after Hariri Sr.'s death) can be investigated and criminalized. I'm no legal expert, but it's not true that corrupt acts here are all done within the bounds of the law and are thus unreachable - take the huge case of the Mikati/Audi housing loans, for example.

    Yes sorry I got carried away because yesterday there were all kind of tweets of Raoul Nehme saying they didn't say they want to fire Salemeh, add to that the US Embassy denouncing the protesters and the french contacting Wazni .... felt like everything is back to the way it was.
    But still let's hope not.

    But why did they wait over 3 months to take such action? This is a serious question, I'm not being a smartass. The audit alone will take a some time to finish.
