Several sources confirmed the arrest of the Director of the Libyan Foreign Bank (LFB), Mohamed Bin Yusef, by the Special Operations Force of the Ministry of Interior on Monday.

The sources stated he was arrested as a result of an arrest warrant, sent by the Attorney General at the Office of the Attorney General, Abdul Basit Shahran.

The arrest comes within the framework of an official report received by the Attorney General’s Office, which included an accusation of the Governor of the Central Bank of Libya (CBL), Sadiq Al-Kabir that Mohamed Bin Yusuf entered LFB by force despite his suspension from work, due to suspicions of corruption and the wasting of public funds.
