Justice Minister Ashraf Rifi and the two Kataeb ministers Thursday stormed out of a Cabinet session to protest the government's failure to discuss his proposal to refer the case of former Information Minister Michel Samaha to the Judicial Council.Information Minister Ramzi Joreige revealed as he read the Cabinet's statement that the government endorsed a decree to allocate the necessary payments to the Council for Development and Reconstruction to fund trash exportation until a sustainable solution is reached.However, Bou Saab said in a tweet that the Free Patriotic Movement minister rejected the matter and didn't sign the decree. The Cabinet in a closed-door session in December selected Chinook, a British firm, to manage the state's trash exportation plan. Agriculture Minister Akram Chehayeb said at the time the deal would cost the country more than $200 million over the next 18 months.
