BEIRUT: Lebanon’s Financial Prosecutor Ali Ibrahim has ordered the arrest of the central bank’s director of monetary operations.
The arrest warrant of Mazen Hamdan was issued late Thursday night, reports said, with Ibrahim accusing him of “manipulating the lira exchange rate.”
Last week, Mahmoud Mrad, head of the Syndicate of Money Changers in Lebanon, was arrested along with several others “after an investigation into money changers selling in an illegal manner.”
