The terrorism brewing at Roumieh prison affects the security and economy of the entire country, Interior Minister Nouhad Machnouk said Friday in a bid to convince Lebanon's banking leaders to fund an ambitious reform program.In a fundraising meeting with the Association of Banks in Lebanon, Machnouk insisted that the prison crisis is "a problem with a solution," while laying out the dire state of affairs in Lebanon's largest prison. Machnouk proposed a comprehensive reform program to address these and other violations.The entire project is projected to cost hundreds of millions of dollars, which Machnouk is hoping to solicit from friendly Arab countries and the banking sector.
