The Lebanese Parliament approved a law exempting vehicles in from annual mechanic fees.

The legislation fully exempts public vehicles and rental cars from the mechanic fees for 2020 and 2021, local media reported.

Notably, vehicles with vanity license plates will not be included in the exemption, while all other private vehicles will benefit from a range of exemption rates that vary depending on their manufacture dates and horsepower.

The legislation was passed along with several others that MPs voted on during Parliament’s Monday session, which had a total of nearly 70 draft laws on its agenda, 29 items of which were addressed before the legislative session ended.

Other legislations passed notably include criminalizing sexual harassment, and others relating to domestic abuse and banking secrecy.
