The Presidency Press Office denied the information broadcasted by Al-Jadeed TV, this evening, claiming that the President of the Republic, General Michel Aoun, “gave permission” to raid a number of banks in the context of investigations of bank lawsuits.
“The Press Office asserts that that this news is fabricated and baseless,” the statement said.
Moreover, the Presidency Press Office stated that the meeting held by President Aoun with the Public Prosecutor, Judge Ghassan Oueidat, was aimed at examining the circumstances of what happened in some banks.
The Press Office also denied what journalist Johnny Mounayar mentioned on “Al-Jadeed” TV about a meeting held at Baabda Palace after the decision issued by “Hezbollah” and “Amal Movement” to re-attend the cabinet sessions.
