The Attorney General’s Office announced Saturday that the Public Prosecutor has ordered the detention, pending trial, of the Manager of the Al-Refee (Rural) Bank, Tripoli branch. The manager is accused of illegal banking operations conducted on bank accounts. This involved the bank manager opening a bank account in a different bank for the purpose of entering an amount of LD 15 million into a bank transfer ring. In this process, the accused facilitated the seizure of an amount equivalent to 1.3 million euros, using forged bank papers. The Attorney General’s Office said the case was initiated as a result of revelations made during the Audit Bureau’s examination of the administrative and financial work assigned to the Al-Refee (Rural) Bank, Tripoli branch manager.
