The Public Prosecution has ordered the former director of the Sahara Bank Janzour branch and a former employee in the electronic clearing department to be arrested on charges of involvement in illegal banking transactions.

The Public Prosecutor at the Anti-Corruption Crimes Prosecution Office in the Tripoli Appeal Court circuit initiated an investigation regarding some employees of the bank carrying out banking transactions in violation of the rules governing bank clearing procedures and related accounting restrictions," a statement by the prosecutor's office said.

The two bank officials face charges of allowing other offenders to obtain illegal material benefits after they allegedly deducted more than 35 million dinars from the bank.

The accused will remain in custody pending further investigation, which according to the Public Prosecutor, might lead to other arrests.
