EDL cracks down on power violations
Lebanon's utility will begin prosecuting violators
Electricite Du Liban, Lebanon’s beleaguered electricity utility, has said that its inspectors are to introduce a comprehensive campaign of crackdowns, in an attempt to put a stop of violations on its networks.
A statement issued by the company said that in June this year, more than 1,600 violations were identified by inspectors across the country, with Beirut accounting for the majority. It also said that EDL inspectors were having trouble suppressing violations in some areas, and has called upon citizens to facilitate the inspectors’ job to help secure a reliable power service.
“We assure all those who commit violations that we will be taking legal measures to prosecute them,” the statement read, also mentioning that power supply would be cut to those not paying their bills.
