AUGUST 17 AMENDMENTS

 








Articles in reference to the chronological progression of the legal amendments of 17 August, 2010, concerning the right to work of Palestinian Refugees in Lebanon

On August 17, 2010, the Lebanese Parliament ratified legal amendments to Article 9 of the Social Security Law; and Article 59 of the Lebanese Labour Law. The passing of the Law amendments stirred various legal and political questions regarding its utility and timing. Reactions varied from praise “These amendments are an important step in the right direction...”; to criticism describing the amendments as a “deficient step, a nominal achievement that does not represent the minimum margin of the Palestinian Civil Rights… rights that should not be curtailed…the extensive discussions of the earlier version proposed by the Democratic Gathering emptied the law of any real meaning”; to yet other levels of antagonist criticism referring to the passing of the amendments as “a prelude to naturalization/tawteen…What happened at the August 17 parliament session was a black stain on the Lebanese Parliament…” invoking the need to invalidation.
