Lebanon’s justice minister announces resignation

Ashraf Rifi

Lebanon’s Justice Minister Ashraf Rifi on Sunday announced his resignation, blaming political rivals Hezbollah and their allies for the country’s political crisis, which has seen it without a president for 21 months and paralysed state institutions.

“Continuing (to be part of) this government has become an agreement to this deviation, or at least is a failure to confront it,” Rifi said in a statement.

“So I present to you and to Prime Minister Tammam Salam my resignation.”
