Europe freezes 120 million euros in Lebanese assets

The European Judicial Cooperation Unit “Eurogast” announced today, Monday, that France, Germany, Luxembourg, Monaco and Belgium have frozen Lebanese assets worth 120 million euros ($130 million) following an investigation into a money laundering case, indicating the confiscation of five properties.

The unit said in a statement, that the investigation targeted five suspects on charges of money laundering and “the embezzlement of public funds in Lebanon worth more than $330 million and five million euros, respectively, between 2002 and 2021.”

The statement did not specify the identity of the suspects. A Eurojust spokesman declined to reveal the names of the suspects, in line with regulations.

“Eurojust” participated in coordinating the inter-state meetings that are investigating the Governor of the Banque du Liban, Riad Salameh, who is suspected by Swiss prosecutors of embezzling about $330 million with his brother Raja, and his close assistant, Marianne Howayek. At least four other countries, including Germany, France and Luxembourg, are also investigating with Salameh.
