Speech of the Major General OSMAN
Under the slogan of service, trust, partnership.
We meet today at an ISF significant facility to prove together that security and economy are closely linked.
When security is stable, the economy grows and flourishes.
Your contribution clearly demonstrates your interest and understanding of the need to enhance security.
And as it has become known to all, we have put in place a five-year strategic plan, between 2018 and 2022, to enhance the ISF and strengthen their capacities at all levels.
The ISF was and will always remain at a distance from everyone who upholds the truth and refutes falsehood.
We have set in our priorities the eradication of corruption and corruptors through detecting them and referring them to a just and fair justice.
Then Major general Osman went on improvising:
Everyone knows that our institution was the first to start fighting corruption so that no one would ever tell us "Your house is made out of glass". We will cooperate with everyone in fighting this scourge. We must be fully convinced that we have corruption before we start fighting it all over Lebanon. All of our investigations fall within the strict legal framework, meaning what we do is not on our own but under the supervision of the judicial authorities. It is not permissible to say that the judicial authorities are corrupt, the state is corrupt and the institutions are corrupt, but there are corrupt people inside these institutions. Major General Osman added: We must respect the law in detail because it gives each person their right.
We are not about to carry out fake heroines, but we exercise our role according to the legal text given to us and we do not exceed it.
The accountability of judges is a matter up to the competent authority, the Judicial Inspection Authority, and we will not play this role because it is considered an exit from the institutions.
I say this before you so that everyone knows our limits; where and how is our way to reach a secure state that returns rights to its owners.
Speech of Dr. Joseph Tarabeih
