"Inspectors [from the Economy Ministry's Consumer Protection Bureau] would go to municipalities requesting help, or asking questions about violations, and the municipalities are not cooperating with them," Khoury later told The Daily Star.He said although most municipalities are cooperating with inspectors, there were several reports that some are not, hinting that this may be a result of certain municipalities benefiting from generator owners in exchange for covering up violations.Khoury also discussed the circular released Monday by his ministry regarding deposits paid to generator owners.Khoury explained Tuesday that the deposit ensures the rights of the generator owner in case the subscriber fails to pay the monthly bill, while the invoice given ensures the subscriber's right of reimbursement in case of a subscription cancellation.Khoury said the ministry had set the value of the deposit to protect the rights of both the subscribers and generator owners.
