Germany informs Lebanon of arrest warrant against bank chief - sources

Lebanon has been verbally informed by Germany of an arrest warrant against Central Bank Governor Riad Salameh "on charges of corruption, forgery... and money laundry and embezzlement." a senior judicial source told Reuters on Tuesday.

No one at the German federal prosecution was immediately available to comment.

Last Friday, France's national financial prosecutor confirmed in a statement that it has issued an arrest warrant for Salameh.

Salameh has denied any wrongdoing.
