The Minister of Economy and Finance Mr. Nizar Baraka, " emphatically denied" signing any document "amending" or "modifying" a provision of the Finance Bill for the year 2013.

In an update, of which the MAP received a copy Friday, Mr. Baraka expressed his own surprise to see his name mentioned in this regard by the media, ensuring his respect of the will of the representatives of the nation and the legislative institution`s prerogatives.

M.Baraka stated thathe was on official business abroad just hours after the adoption by the House of Representatives of the 2013 Finance Bill.It was impossible in these conditions to make or sign any document.

There is thus no document bearing my signature and modifying the 2013 Finance Bill apart from the constitutional and legal procedures, clarified Mr. Baraka.
