BEIRUT: Health Minister Wael Abu Faour referred two cases regarding health care violations Thursday to the prosecutor’s office for further review.
The National News Agency said the first case was against a Syrian national who runs a shop that sells drugs and unlicensed aphrodisiacs in Minyeh, near the northern city of Tripoli.
A Lebanese businessman in Tripoli identified by his initials as R.A. was also found to be involved in the case, NNA said.
Abu Faour also referred to the prosecutor’s office a case of expired medications in the Beirut neighborhood of Barbir.
Separately, Abu Faour called on citizens, particularly patients receiving chemotherapy, to report any violations committed against them by any hospital.
He urged judicial authorities to take strict legal measures against the violators.
