Six Lebanese banks to suffer transfer ban as Judge Aoun investigation proceeds

Mount Lebanon Prosecutor Judge Ghada Aoun on Thursday issued an order asking the Customs administration to prevent six Lebanese banks from sending money abroad, al-Jadeed TV said.

The TV network identified the six banks as Bank of Beirut, Bank Audi, Creditbank, BankMed, SGBL and BLOM Bank.

“This is a precautionary measure aimed at preventing these banks from transferring abroad what’s left of depositors’ money,” al-Jadeed said.

It added that the move comes based on a motion filed by the People Want to Reform the Regime activist group.
