The controversial cement factory being built in Zahle by the brother of MP Nicolas Fattoush will most probably not be completed, the city's mayor told The Daily Star Friday, saying that the municipality has revoked its construction permit after a public outcry against the project.Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea had warned Friday the Fattoush family against building the factory, saying the project would have a severely negative effect on the health of Zahle's residents.Geagea called on Hajj Hasan to revoke the license and stop the plan. Former Zahle MP Elias Skaff, who is Nicolas Fattoush's political rival, is also against the construction of the factory, and held a demonstration last week against the plan.
