Lebanese Authorities will not leave hunters free to flout law

The Ministry of the Environment has today made a statement confirming the court summons of a citizen charged on two counts for infringements of the newly implemented Hunting Laws in Northern Lebanon: illegal killing of 217 nightjars (non-game birds) and proudly posted a video online showing the kill on the bonnet of his vehicle.
