The Governor of Lebanon’s Central Bank Riad Salameh has been summoned for questioning by the Investigative Judge of Mount Lebanon Ziad Makna, following a lawsuit against him by the alliance of anti-corruption lawyers, United for Lebanon (UFL).
The sanctions, if applied, would freeze Salameh‘s assets overseas and “curtail his ability to do business abroad.”
It is to note that European authorities have been investigating Salameh, including several Lebanese figures, based on a “suspicion list” prepared in coordination between France, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
