Following a ruling of the state’s Shura Council, the Central Bank decided to stop Circular 151 which was allowing depositors to withdraw dollars stuck in Lebanese banks in Lebanese Pounds at the 3,900 LBP rate rather than 1,500 LBP rate.
Our team works tirelessly to ensure Lebanese people have a reliable alternative to the politically-backed media outlets with their heavily-funded and dangerous propaganda machines. We've been detained, faced nonstop cyber attacks, censorship, attempted kidnapping, physical intimidation, and frivolous lawsuits draining our resources. Financial support from our readers keeps us fighting on your behalf. If you are financially able, please consider supporting The961's work. Support The961. Make a contribution now.
