Caretaker Prime Minister Najib Mikati Tuesday called on caretaker Telecommunications Minister Nicolas Sehnaoui to explain allegedly illegal licenses issued to Internet companies.In a letter sent to Sehnaoui and released publicly, Mikati called on the minister to explain his justification for granting licenses to eight Internet service providers with approval from the Cabinet. Sehnaoui promptly responded to Mikati's letter, insisting that all of the licenses were issued in accordance with the law and reminding the prime minister that the signature of a minister is binding to the Lebanese state under Article 66 of the Constitution.Sehaoui also rejected Mikati's argument that the licensing runs contrary to Law 431 .
