Lebanon’s Caretaker Interior Minister, Bassam Mawlawi, has requested the Ministry of Telecommunications to halt the operation of the Bolt app in the country starting May 8, 2023.

This move follows a sharp increase in complaints from public transport unions and a series of protests across various Lebanese regions.

Mawlawi’s request aims to ensure compliance with traffic laws and other regulations in force, addressing concerns raised by the unions.

In addition to this, he has instructed the General Directorate of Internal Security Forces to strictly pursue and penalize drivers who use forged public license plates or operate public transport vehicles with private license plates.
