These actions come after having succeeded in bringing the case of the governor of the Banque du Liban, Riad Salameh, to its terms, and the issuance of an indictment and an international arrest warrant by the French Financial Prosecutor’s Office against the governor.
Also a plot allegedly organised against him by PM Najib Mikati – who is pursued by a gang money laundering investigation organised in Lebanon by the public prosecutor’s office of the Principality of Monaco – which aimed to physically liquidate him indirectly.
For its part, the European Union is preparing a report on the inhuman persecution taking place in Lebanon against those who fight corruption, including Omar Harfouch, and is preparing a conference in Brussels on this subject next September.
Prior to this, Omar Harfouch will tour EU member states parliaments such as Austria, Spain and Italy, to consult with parliamentary groups with the aim of mobilising as many of them as possible to support a draft resolution, punishing those who help and protect the corrupt in Lebanon and profit from their illegitimate money, whether in the judiciary, state employees or even the media.
It should be noted that the European Union actually started about ten days ago to work on a project of sanctions against corruption and to protect those who disclose it and whistleblowers.
