The US Embassy denies interfering to prevent any legal action against the Governor of the Banque du Liban

Today, Wednesday, the US Embassy in Lebanon denied its request to Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri to intervene to prevent any legal action taken against the Governor of the Banque du Liban, Riad Salameh.

“We were surprised by a press report indicating that the Banque du Liban was the subject of a discussion between US Ambassador Dorothy Shea and President Berri yesterday,” the embassy said, in a statement via its account on the social networking site “Twitter”.

She added, “In fact, the discussion with the Speaker of the House of Representatives focused on questions about the House of Representatives and an upcoming visit by an official in the US State Department, so clarification was required.”
