If you can read Arabic, you must absolutely read this investigation by Rasha Abu Zeki concerning a new controversial decision by the council of ministers to allow the sale of non-refined oil in breach of current standards and regulations. The main players in the game according to Rasha: one is a very large importer of refined cooking oil who also happens to be the brother of the prime minister. The other is the owner of a large refining facility and a member of the Hariri Future movement (which supports the prime minister). You wont know whether to laugh or cry.
