The resigned captain of the bakery owners’ Syndicate, Ali Ibrahim, held the Oil Directorate responsible for the crisis facing the bakeries in terms of supporting them, due to the fact that no book has been issued by it yet, and it is left to its fate, noting that “it is possible that the price of a bundle of bread becomes beyond imagination.”
In an interview with Al-Jadeed, Ibrahim pointed out that the fuel subsidy will be lifted, but the flour subsidy will not be lifted.
He added, “The price of a bundle of bread will be increased by a thousand Lebanese pounds, and this increase is for the mills and for fuel, and if the bundle is raised completely, the bundle’s price will increase even more.”
He revealed that “the work of the Minister of Economy, Amin Salam, is being obstructed by the Oil Directorate.”
“God willing, we will solve the problem with the Minister of Economy before a new crisis occurs,” Ibrahim concluded.
