The Public Prosecution has referred 26 individuals accused of corruption crimes amounting to millions in the banking sector to the judiciary. The Public Prosecutor’s Office said that some of the defendants took 12 million dinars from the North African Bank, while others had taken funds from Jumohouriyah, Wihda, and Commercial banks.

The Public Prosecutor's Office also said that the defendants falsified the data included in the bank's databases to maximize the bank's debts in certain bank accounts, adding that some of them were able to include numbers that exceed the actual credit balances, and then they conducted banking operations that allowed them to exchange the funds they accumulated in the database to foreign currency.

The Public Prosecutor's Office further added that the investigations proved that the defendants were equipped with digital programs that enabled them to create accounting entries that contradict the truth to cover crimes, stressing that they were now held in pretrial detention.
