Salameh Targeted in French Legal Complaint


Two associations said on Monday they had filed a legal complaint against Lebanon’s central bank governor Riad Salameh whom they accuse of fraudulently amassing a large fortune in Europe.

The Sherpa NGO, which specialises in fighting financial crime, and the “Collective of victims of fraudulent and criminal activities in Lebanon” said they were also targeting Salameh’s brother Raja, his son Nadi, his nephew as well as a close associate at the central bank, Marianne Hoayek, in the case.
