The governor of the Banque du Liban will resign if a court verdict is passed against him.

DUBAI (Reuters) – Riyad Salameh, the governor of Lebanon’s central bank, has said he will resign if a court ruling is passed against him. “The legal route is unfair, but I am ready to take it,” he told Saudi television channel Al-Hadath. He said he is cooperating with justice. Riad Salamé, along with his brother and an assistant, are under investigation for alleged embezzlement of hundreds of millions of dollars from central banks in Lebanon and at least five European countries to the state’s detriment.
