Until his demise, Michel Mecattaf was the CEO of the Mecattaf company, a foreign currency and fund transfer specialist.
He and his company have been the target of a series of cases by Judge Ghada Aoun since 2021, accusing him of alleged money laundering through his company.
Michel Mecattaf is a father of three, and the husband of Nicole Gemayel, daughter of former president Amine Gemayel and sister to Samy Gemayel, head of the Kataeb Party.
