Al-Rahi Deems Government's Final Ruling Against Lebanon's Central Bank Governor as Unacceptable

Maronite Patriarch Bechara al-Rahi stressed that the purpose behind the campaign launched against Lebanon's Central Bank Governor Riad Salameh is to destroy the Lebanese’ confidence, deeming such approach as unacceptable.

“While we were waiting for Prime Minister Hassan Diab to announce the government’s new reform and rescue plan that would eliminate the country's fundamental deficiencies such as corruption, waste, stealing and others, we got surprised by a final ruling against Salameh without giving him the right to self-defense,” Al-Rahi said during his Sunday sermon.

“Is this contrary approach to our Lebanese political system is part of a plan to change Lebanon’s face?” he asked.

“We, as a Maronite Patriarchate, warn against proceeding in this unfamiliar approach in our Lebanese political literature,” he added.
