According to news from France, the financial supervisory authorities there have opened an investigation into the personal wealth of the Governor of the Central Bank of Lebanon, Riad Salameh.

The preliminary investigation, which is being conducted by French financial prosecutors, began to charge Salameh with involvement in crimes and involvement in money laundering.

A source familiar with the progress of the investigations said that this action comes after a similar move by the authorities in Switzerland.

The results of the French investigation are expected to shed light on the sources of the personal wealth of the former Merrill Lynch banker.
