Mount Lebanon Prosecutor Judge Ghada Aoun on Thursday issued an order asking the Customs administration to prevent six Lebanese banks from sending money abroad, al-Jadeed TV said.

The TV network identified the six banks as Bank of Beirut, Bank Audi, Creditbank, BankMed, SGBL and BLOM Bank.

“This is a precautionary measure aimed at preventing these banks from transferring abroad what’s left of depositors’ money,” al-Jadeed said.

It added that the move comes based on a motion filed by the People Want to Reform the Regime activist group.
