The Explosive Detector Scam saga continues in Lebanon

I remember posting about this scandal back in 2010 when BBC conducted an investigation and found out that the so-called bomb detectors are useless. Later on and as reported by Youmna from LBC Blogs, both the the US government related SANDIA laboratory the United States Navy Explosive Ordnance Disposal came out with the same conclusion.

The question remains: Why are people still using it in Lebanon and why doesn’t the government ban their use and penalize companies selling it?

    why doesn’t the government ban their use and penalize companies selling it?

    Because it is none other than our govermnent (members) who are selling it! Would anyone penalize themselves??

    I’ve seen this documentary, but I can imagine how hard it is to fire one of those young or old security men who come from the far suburbs mostly and are so serious about their jobs as security providers! this could still be useful to virtually decrease unemployment;p

    Very similar to those road tolls collectors you find on every road in the US while you only have machines to do these jobs anywhere around Europe..
