Parliament's Finance and Budget Committee Tuesday accused state-run telecommunications company Ogero of submitting "useless" documents to the committee in an investigation into illegal hiring. MP Ibrahim Kanaan said in a televised news conference after chairing a session of the committee that, for example, there were discrepancies between figures Ogero submitted on salary payments and other documents that had been obtained by the committee.Kanaan was referring to a letter obtained by Samad, who sits on the committee, that Ogero sent in January 2018 to then-Telecommunications Minister Jamal Jarrah, who is now information minister.Last month, the committee verified that Ogero had illegally hired 453 people after a public sector hiring freeze introduced in August 2017 under Article 21 of Law 46 .
