(MENAFN- Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) BEIRUT, May 19 (KUNA) -- Minister of Interior of the caretaking government Bassam Al-Mawlawi affirmed on Friday that the local authorities received an arrest warrant against Governor of the Central Bank Riad Salameh from the Interpol.
The minister in a statement said "we are seriously discussing Salameh's destiny after receiving the Interpol notice," indicating that the bank governor would be detained if the local judiciary takes a decision in this respect.
