Bassil wants Lebanese prosecution of central bank chief

Head of the Free Patriotic Movement Jebran Bassil asked Monday why Central Bank Governor Riad Salameh hasn’t been prosecuted in Lebanon yet.

“Is it acceptable for Salameh to be prosecuted and interrogated in many European countries but not in Lebanon?” Bassil questioned in a tweet.

“He is the person most involved in serious money laundering crimes,” he said.

“Is this how we restore confidence in the Lebanese pound?” Bassil decried.
