Prosecutor Ghada Aoun is doing a great job going after the heads of “the Lebanon cartel,” including BDL Governor Riad Salameh. Yet, she has never filed charges against President Michel Aoun and his clique, while there is a close link between them and Salameh: Cedrus Bank.

In 2016, Lebanon was given a $55 million World Bank loan to clean up the Litani River and lake Qaraoun.
