For individuals who have no idea, it should be repeated that Ezzat Eid first arrived in Liberia on January 26, 1968 and has remained in Liberia since then, even throughout the nearly fifteen (15) years of civil conflict on this nation. It’s in Liberia that Ezzat Eid married his spouse, Hoda, and so they had 4 (four) youngsters: Marwan, Helen, Omar and Fares, all born in Liberia. Marwan and Helen are married and dwell in Liberia with their spouses. Omar spends extra time exterior Liberia engaged in non-public ventures elsewhere; however Fares (the youngest) can also be married and lives in Liberia along with his partner. Ezzat Eid began the non-public enterprise in Liberia in 1976 when he established Capital Electrical Firm in Buzzi Quarters. He subsequently established the Worldwide Aluminum Manufacturing unit in 1998 after which established Metropolis Builders Inc. in 2002, which right this moment is without doubt one of the largest importers and sellers of building supplies in Liberia. Ezzat Eid is engaged in quite a lot of enterprise ventures, equivalent to: import and sale of building supplies, tools, and furnishings (Metropolis Builders Inc.); actual property improvement and administration ("Realty Administration Company"); hospitality and leisure (the "Royal Grand Lodge"); bread baking ("Loving Bakery"), rock crushing plant ("Medina Rock Crushing Firm"); manufacture of constructing supplies and housing improvement ("Worldwide Aluminum Manufacturing unit"); and the import and sale of Chinese language-made autos ("Tayo Motors Liberia Restricted"). Not too long ago, he joined different overseas buyers to acquire a contract to contract a cement manufacturing unit in Buchanan, Grand Bassa County, pursuant to an settlement with the Weah Authorities; and so they have already acquired the land to construct the manufacturing unit. These buyers shall be in Liberia on Friday, January 10, 2020 for this challenge. Why would an individual with investments in so many bodily buildings get entangled within the actions that Fb posts accused him of doing when he was in motion, and in reality any protest may destroy all his investments in Liberia?
Since Ezzat Eid arrived in Liberia, he has lived and skilled the super destruction that politically motivated protests and political rebellion have triggered to the bodily buildings, unimaginable injury to the lives and security of Liberian residents and overseas residents, and complete disruption of the physique. The politics and social cloth of this nation. His expertise with these fully severe detrimental penalties started with the April 1979 riots and culminated within the April 1980 army coup. He was right here for the 1985 Quinwonkpa invasion and the beginning of the civil conflict in December 1989. He skilled the Octopus Invasion October 1992; skilled the Failures of April 1996 and the Third World Struggle of the early 2000s. Every of those multiplicities of civil unrest, a few of which began with a name for peaceable protests, affected Ezzat Eid, his household, and his industrial corporations, in addition to all different Liberian and overseas residents on this nation. Ezzat Eid continued to place confidence in our nation's future prospects; Subsequently, as an alternative of leaving Liberia resulting from these civil unrest, he remained right here and expanded his enterprise pursuits in our nation. Are you able to consider that this very Ezzat Eid, who has lots to lose, will collaborate with folks whose intention is to destabilize Liberia with an assault of drive and anarchy?
Throughout his residency and entrepreneurship in Liberia, this similar Ezzat Eid has served three (three) instances as President of the Lebanese World Cultural Union of Liberia and has served for a number of a long time as a member of the Govt Committee of this auspicious group. Are you able to consider that different Lebanese folks residing in Liberia would have trusted Ezzat Eid if he have been an individual who would have interaction in Liberian politics in violation of Liberian regulation, and advocate and help the subversion of the Liberian authorities?
Ezzat Eid has denied any relationship with the COP and its leaders, particularly Mr. Henry Costa; He has additionally denied any information or involvement within the prosecution and the "false", "false", "malicious" and "diabolical" actions for which he has been accused by Fb posts. He denied having bought any car in the US or wherever else on the planet for using Mr. Henry Costa; He says he doesn't even know the person (besides to see his pictures within the Liberian newspapers) and has by no means met him personally. Anybody ought to marvel how the author of Fb posts would have identified if Ezzat Eid or a 3rd celebration had bought a car for Mr. Henry Costa in the US. Ezzat Eid additionally says he’s not within the container scanning contract (CTN contract), which one other Lebanese businessman has. To the very best of our information and data, it was the Liberian Chamber of Commerce, not Ezzat Eid, that originally opposed the CTN contract however deserted its opposition when the Nationwide Port Authority defined that the CTN contract was economically useful to Liberia and it fulfilled Liberia's worldwide obligations below customs treaties and agreements. Actually, the Lebanese businessman who has the CTN contract with the Nationwide Port Authority is an Ezzat Eid tenant and lives in one of many Ezzat Eid compound homes on a reduced hire. Fact be instructed, Ezzat Eid is successfully sponsoring the Lebanese businessman's CTN contract with the Nationwide Port Authority, and the author (s) for Fb posts declare the alternative which is without doubt one of the causes Ezzat Eid is supporting the COP is that he desires CTN contract by himself. This devilish and malicious falsehood in opposition to Ezzat Eid is just not supported by any truth.
However all these denials are usually not sufficient, Mr. Ezzat Eid, a deterrent to comparable info and falsehoods about himself and others sooner or later, Ezzat Eid ought to see by means of his risk to analyze and provoke authorized motion in opposition to whoever posted the Fb posts. . Greater than this, whereas it’s true that Ezzat Eid hospitality corporations are public locations, you shouldn’t encourage using these services by any particular person or individuals who publicly profess the intention of destabilizing the Authorities of Liberia or inflicting havoc and chaos within the physique. politics or the social cloth of our nation. Such individuals are usually not entitled to make use of the services of Ezzat Eid hospitality corporations for his or her conferences and all individuals within the hospitality enterprise should be alerted to disclaim entry to their lodging providers to such individuals. The choice is that, harmless as they’re, different folks (together with the safety equipment) may assume that permitting entry to the instigators of chaos and the destruction of their conferences is the same as collaborating with them. One can solely empathize with the drawbacks (private and industrial) that Ezzat Eid and his relations have skilled when search warrants have been issued to look the Royal Grand Lodge and different locations owned and operated by them and their enterprise companions. .
Liberian regulation is evident that solely Liberians can take part in politics in Liberia. Non-Liberians have at all times revered this provision of our legal guidelines; not solely have they by no means been concerned in politics however they’ve by no means supported any political exercise on this nation. No matter regime is in energy, the Lebanese folks in our midst have at all times cooperated unquestionably with that regime within the train of its powers and political authority. The Lebanese Neighborhood has at all times cooperated to supply social providers to the Liberian folks and to help the social applications of the Liberian authorities in energy. The accusation right this moment that Ezzat Eid and the proprietor of the Tropicana Seashore Resort are collaborating with the COP is weird and unprecedented; Extra importantly, there may be not a shred of reality in these allegations, particularly when the safety searches mounted on the Fb posts occasion yielded no info to substantiate these allegations.
WHY WAS EZZAT EID AND OWNERS OF THE TROPICANA BEACH RESORT ADDRESSED THESE MALICIOUS AND DIABOLIC CHARGES WHICH COULD PUT YOUR PERSONAL SAFETY AND THE SAFETY OF THE MEMBERS OF THEIR FAMILY AT RISK AND DESTROYING THEIR BUSINESSES? IS IT ANY OF YOUR BUSINESS COMPETITORS WHO WANTS TO MALIGNATE AND DESTROY EZZAT EID'S BUSINESS IN LIBERIA? OR IS IT SOMEONE WHO BELIEVES THAT BY HIRING SUCH DEVILS AND MALICS LIES ABOUT EZZAT EID OR WOULD THEY HAVE THE GOOD THANKS OF THE GOVERNMENT OF WEAH? ANYWHERE THE ANSWER TO THESE QUESTIONS MAY BE, EZZAT EID SHOULD REALLY CONTAIN ITS THREAT OF TAKING THIS PERSON TO JUSTICE AS SUCH FALSE AND MALICIOUS ACCUSATIONS TO EXPOSE THE VICTIM TO WHICH IS THE COMPENSATION AND INJURY OF WHICH IS THE COMPOSITION AND THE INJURY OF WHICH IS THE COMPONENT FOR FEES AND CARE OF COMPENSATION FOR CARE PROPAGERS OF SUCH STORIES.
