Minister Raya Hassan to firmly apply law related to violence against women


Newly appointed minister of interior, Raya Hassan, stressed yesterday that the law protecting women against violence shall be strictly observed. Addressing Lebanese women, Hassan said each police station in each village across Lebanon is responsible for their protection, noting that security is in agreement with respect for human rights and freedom of expression. Hassan, who was speaking during her taking over of the tasks of the interior ministry from former minister Nuhad Machnouk, outlined the main topics of her action plan. Hassan described her task as challenging, as the ministry is responsible for the enforcement of the law and serving citizens. Hassan made clear that from the security part, she will be firm in the issue of random use of weapons and firing guns, as well as in implementing the traffic law.
