The European Union in Lebanon has in recent months been the subject of a defamation campaign by a private waste management company which has carried out a string of personal attacks and threats against the European Union.
The campaign started in April 2018, possibly because the company had not received financial support from the European Union. We understand from recent statements that the company's owner has been rejected entry to Lebanon, an incident we had no knowledge about or involvement in.
While we applaud initiatives promoting the transformation to a green economy in Lebanon, we reject all the company's accusations against the European Union, its staff and their relatives that amount to defamation and libel. They are unfounded and do nothing but distract this company from its original mission.
