The head of the “Al-Nahrain Network to Support Integrity and Transparency”, a member of the United Nations Convention against Corruption coalition, Muhammad Rahim Al-Rubaie, confirmed, on Saturday, that the financial crisis that Lebanon is suffering from represented a mercy bullet for all the corrupt who smuggled their money from Iraq and put it there.
Al-Rubaie said in an interview seen by "The Information", that "the financial crisis that Lebanon has suffered three years ago, constituted a major blow to all the corrupt who smuggled their money from Iraq and put it there."
He added, "Most of the money belongs to corrupt Iraqis who have held sensitive positions over the past period, or political parties that smuggled oil and natural resources and the like, and that money was deposited in Lebanese banks."
Al-Rubaie indicated that “the issue also included junior employees who deposited hundreds of thousands of dollars as a result of suspicious operations in these banks,” noting that
“the corruption mafias worked to blackmail those banks after they were completely closed to no avail, and like the Lebanese government’s announcement of such decisions ( A mercy bullet) on the corrupt Iraqis and their money in Lebanese banks.” finished/25
