In order to protect the interests of the country within the framework of a solid social contract based on trust, fairness, and transparency, Lebanese citizens recognize the following principles:

  1. Corruption shakes the foundations of the country and society, and it affects all natural and legal persons in both the public and private sectors.
  2. Corruption violates basic rights, such as equality before the law, access to independent and impartial justice, access to health care and social protection, right to work, right to acquire education and knowledge, and right to housing.
  3. Corruptions undermines the citizen’s confidence in the political and administrative institutions of the country.
  4. Corruption destroys the moral values of society and contradicts the educational principles that are passed on to future generations.
  5. Corruption impedes the country’s prosperity and sustainable economic development.
  6. Corruption is a source of injustice and an unfair distribution of resources.
  7. Corruption hinders free competition and leads to an increase in prices at the expense of citizens.
  8. Corruption discourages Lebanese and foreign investors, and thus contributes to increasing unemployment.

Citizens’ declaration on the fight against corruption

Refraining from requesting, offering, or receiving gifts, donations, gratuities, services, and any benefits of any kind from/to any person working in the public or the private sector with the aim of influencing a decision.

05

Avoiding conflicts of interest and announcing them when they cannot be avoided.

06

Realizing that well-intentioned corruption whistleblowers play a key role in combating corruption and deserve respect and protection.

07

Exercising my right to obtain information related to State finances as well as my right to accountability, as this practice is a national duty and it contributes to combating corruption.

 

08

Supporting all measures that allow the Lebanon State to recover funds and public assets that were illegally acquired or stolen, given the fact that asset recovery constitutes a national priority.
