Security forces raid Lebanon central bank governor's house

STORY: On Tuesday (June 21), state security forces raided the home - which lies northeast of Beirut - as part of a probe into alleged misconduct and corruption.

A subpoena was issued in February by Judge Ghada Aoun after Salameh failed to show up for questioning as part of an investigation she was leading into alleged misconduct and corruption.

Aoun, in March, charged Salameh with illicit enrichment and Salameh's younger brother with helping to launder the proceeds of illicit enrichment.

Salameh did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Tuesday. He has previously denied any wrongdoing and has characterized investigations against him in Lebanon and abroad as politically motivated.
