Judge Faisal Makki on Monday ordered the preventive freeze of the real estates and assets of governor of Central Bank of Lebanon Riad Salameh, in connection with a request filed by lawyers and activists of The People Want to Reform the System group.

The lawyers were named as Hassan Bazzi, Haitham Ezzo, Jad Tohmeh, Joseph Wanis, Pierre Gemayel, Francois Kamel and Basel Abbas.

From June 11-13, after the Lebanese pound hit a new low on the black market, protests in Lebanon rallied against Salameh’s failure to halt the depreciation.
