Mikati’s office: This is not true

The media office of President Najib Mikati issued the following: “The media is circulating that Prime Minister Najib Mikati asked the Governor of the Banque du Liban to stop the discussion regarding raising the price of dollar deposits in banks and to keep paying them at the exchange rate of 3900 pounds to the dollar.”

This is not true, and any decision in this file is originally within the authority of the Central Council of Banque du Liban.
However, the President gives the highest priority to depositors rights, and he requested to be included as a basic item in the ministerial statement, and it will be followed up mainly after the government gains confidence.
