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