Good morning Lebanon!!!
Well, following the article I previously published concerning my problems with the "Bank", they called me to say they were closing my account and threatened to sue me if I don't remove the article. Not knowing my legal rights, I thought it was wiser to remove it for the time being. The thing is, I don't know the law, whether they are allowed to sue me for telling facts, or whether they can win such a case.
Whether they are also allowed to close my account is not a problem for me since I would have closed it myself anyway.
Nevertheless, if you happen to be a lawyer, I would love to hear your opinion.
I don't consider myself a troublemaker, I just hate to see people taking advantage of us. When somebody advertises something, they should be legally liable toward fulfilling what they promote in their advertisements.
To summarize, I think that most of us Lebanese don't know our legal rights.
One's rights aren't things that other entities are allowed to violate.
There is a lot to be done in order to protect consumer rights in Lebanon.
Maybe we can create a young and dynamic consumer rights organization?
I'll be waiting for your comments...
