Lebanese foreign minister requests secrecy of Swiss judicial investigation | Arab News

Lebanese foreign minister requests secrecy of Swiss judicial investigation​


1611616795852.png

BEIRUT: Lebanon’s foreign minister, Charbel Wehbe, demanded the absolute secrecy of the investigation into “suspicions of money laundering and embezzlement by the Banque du Liban,” following a Swiss request for assistance from the Lebanese judiciary.

Wehbe met with the Swiss ambassador to Beirut, Monika Schmutz Kirgoz, on Monday, who refused to comment on the matter, saying that the probe was a matter that the Swiss minister of justice and the attorney general were dealing with, adding that the Swiss attorney general was the one who requested judicial assistance.

Wehbe said: “Despite the importance of this matter to the Lebanese public, absolute secrecy is required in response to what is being circulated through Lebanese media regarding this case.”

Wehbe called on the media to “report the news as it is, without interpretations, additions, or switching words around.”

He also said: “I hope that the Lebanese judiciary will have absolute freedom to make a statement and take the appropriate decision in this regard.”

The Lebanese judiciary informed the governor of the Banque du Liban, Riad Salameh, last week that he is expected to present his testimony either before the attorney general in Switzerland or before a Swiss judicial delegation at the country’s embassy in Lebanon.

Salameh denied he had made any transfers from the accounts of the Banque du Liban or from its budgets, and expressed his readiness to go to Switzerland to present his testimony.

He said in a statement on Monday: “All reports about large transfers reported by some media outlets are very exaggerated and have nothing to do with reality. They aim to systematically tarnish the image of the central bank and its governor.”

Salameh refused in his statement to “publicly delve into figures and facts to refute all the lies.”

A Lebanese judicial source told Arab News: “(The Lebanese judiciary) has nothing to do with the Swiss investigation into the case of the Banque du Liban. We received a request for assistance, and we are acting as a mailbox.


“The Swiss asked for documents, and we have referred the request to the central bank, and when the documents are available, we will forward them to the Swiss judicial authority.”

The Swiss parliament approved in late 2019 the automatic exchange of bank data with 18 additional countries, including Lebanon.

This agreement means that Switzerland can, under the agreement, provide details of bank accounts held by Lebanese citizens for the purposes of tax verification.

The implementation of this agreement began this year, but Lebanon will not benefit from it due to its failure to meet the standards of the Global Privacy Assembly, according to the declaration issued by the Swiss parliament at the time.

This means that Lebanon will not be able to obtain data or information on Lebanese accounts in Swiss banks, nor in the banks of the signatory countries, except in one case: If the Swiss authorities prove that the transferred funds are suspicious.

News was circulated on social media on Sunday that a Swiss member of parliament said there had been a Swiss decision to freeze Lebanese accounts due to large suspicious financial transfers.

Swiss Socialist MP Fabian Molina said that the funds that arrived in his country from Lebanon after 2016 increased by about $2 billion, “but it has not yet been confirmed that the money entered Switzerland from illegal sources.”

Molina did not confirm reports that funds in Salameh’s account had been frozen. “The press was the one that reported freezing $400 million in Riad Salameh’s account,” he said.

The forensic audit into the accounts of the Banque du Liban is one of the most important clauses in the economic recovery plan that was approved by the government to negotiate with the International Monetary Fund. This clause was included in the French initiative set by President Emmanuel Macron to help Lebanon solve its economic crisis.

Free Patriotic Movement MP Salim Aoun accused “a political system of transferring billions of dollars abroad.”

He said: “Salameh is the agent of this system. If protection for the first official is removed, protection will be removed for all officials, and I fear that some will interfere to obstruct this path.”

Imagine Riad Salameh and his brother took 3 million Lebanese depositors for suckers during the past 30 years under Harirism regime until the Swiss authorities raised red flags after September 17 when the stupid Lebanese were cheering for the so called revolution chanting Killon Ya3ni Killon Bassil Barra Laj1een Jouwa and even now, Salameh remains red line for Rai and the idiots still find time and energy to attack the President and Bassil at every occasion to divert attention from the criminals who raped this country and its people while Sa3d is back to form another doomed government that he truly believes he’s too good to lead it, never mind he was beaten, humiliated and treated like trash by MBS who still refuses to acknowledge his existence as human being while the Lebanese People remain at the mercy of this chimp unable to rise and revolt against such abuse and absurdity…

So apparently Switzerland is expecting 'proof' from Lebanon or at least full cooperation from the Lebanese authorities so they can carry on with the case
his accounts will be frozen in the meantime
a swiss MP just confirmed on an interview with Al Jadeed

Which means this is going nowhere
case closed

١/٥سبق ان طلبت من مسؤولين دوليين مساعدة لبنان على كشف التحويلات المشبوهة للأموال الى الخارج واعادتها له فالمعاهدات الدولية كما الاتفاقات الثنائية تسمح بتعقّب الأموال المنهوبة والموهوبة واستعادتها.لا يجوز الاستهانة بالتجارب الدولية خاصةً بوجود اجهزة متخصّصة لتتبّع الأموال المفقودة
+++
٢/٥ على الحكومة اللبنانية ان تتحرّك دبلوماسياً وان تكلّف مكتب محاماة يقوم بالبحث داخلياً وخارجياً عن هذه الأموال؛ كما عليها اطلاق العمل بعقد التدقيق الجنائي لكشف الفجوة المالية في مصرف لبنان، وهو يشكّل مرتكزاً للمبادرة الفرنسية ويفرض على الرافضين الاقلاع عن محاولات تعطيله.
+++
٣/٥ ننتظر من مجلس النواب اقرار القوانين التي تقدّم بها تكتل لبنان القوي والمتعلّقة بـ: 1-ضبط التحويلات الى الخارج. 2-استعادة الأموال المحوّلة استنسابياً الى الخارج. 3-الكشف الالزامي للأموال والأملاك العائدة للقائمين بخدمة عامة. 4-انشاء المحكمة الخاصة بالجرائم المالية.
+++
٤/٥ على القضاء اللبناني، ان يواكب القضاء السويسري، لا أن يقف موقف المتفرّج والمتلقي، ان لم نقل المتهرّب، لأن المحاسبة ستطال المقصرين منه والفضيحة ستلاحق المتورطين فيه. اللبنانييون يعوّلون على بعض القضاة النزيهين والجريئين لاستعادة ما سُرق منهم.
+++
٥/٥ هنا ساحة المعركة،امّا تحريك الشارع المعروف الانتماء والتمويل،واصابع بعض المنسقين ومسؤولي بعض الأجهزة السابقين والحاليين واضحة فيه؛ان تحريكه لن يحمي منظومتكم السياسية والمالية ولن يحيّد انظارنا عن فسادها وسنبقى نلاحقكم كلّكم، بتصميم وواقعية معاً،حتى تعيدوا،ما سطت عليه ايديكم .

Let the record show:

Only under GMA’s Presidency and in spite of all the Taïf limitations against the Presidency, and the 40 years old Harirism corruption entrenched deep into every Lebanese government institution, the untouchable Riad Salameh name is now synonymous with “dirt” in the headlines of World News.


Thank you our Hero: General Michel Aoun!

You truly are and always be Lebanon’s father for ever!

Lebanese central bank governor charged with dereliction of duty

Between $5m and $7m in central bank funds meant to help the country’s people were squandered from June through December, a Lebanese judge said.

A Lebanese prosecutor charged central bank Governor Riad Salameh with dereliction of duty and breach of trust over the alleged misuse millions of dollars provided by the regulator last year.
Judge Ghada Aoun has been investigating claims that dollars provided by the central bank via an electronic trading platform to help people pay for essential needs and expenses were sold on the black market, where they’d fetch a higher price.
KEEP READING

Between $5 million to $7 million were squandered from June through December, Aoun told Bloomberg. Thirty-seven financial institutions including money exchange bureaus profited from such transactions, she said.
Salameh did not immediately respond to an emailed request for comment.
Aoun referred the case to an investigative judge to pursue it. Salameh, who’s headed the Banque du Liban since 1993, is also entangled in a separate Swiss investigation into possible embezzlement from the Lebanese central bank.
The Swiss didn’t identify the target of their money-laundering probe, but Lebanon’s Al Akhbar newspaper reported an alleged transfer of some $400 million linked to Salameh.

The governor has denied wrongdoing in the Swiss case.
The head of the central bank enjoys immunity from legal prosecution under Lebanese law. A judge needs the approval of the government before pursuing a case as actions against the governor risk monetary stability.
Faced with its worst financial crisis in decades, Lebanon’s currency has come undone, reaching around 8,800 pounds per dollar on the black market.
The central bank continues to subsidize fuel and wheat at the official exchange rate of 1,500 per dollar. The subsidized rate that applied to the electronic platform was 3,900.
