According to the National News Agency, Lebanese activist group “الشعب يريد اصلاح النظام” has filed a lawsuit against Central Bank Governor Riad Saleme, represented by lawyers Haitham Ezzo, Hassan Bazzi, Jad Tohmeh, Joseph Wanis, Pierre Gemayel, Francoise Kamel, Bassel Abbas, and journalist Joey Haddad.

The trial has been scheduled for October 14, 2020 by Judge Lara Abdel Samad, during which the governor will be brought in for allegedly violating Articles 319, 320, 359, 360, 363, and 373 of the Lebanese Penal Code.
