Finance Minister defies Siniora to resort to court over corruption

Minister of Finance, Ali Hassan Khalil, rejected the statement issued on Tuesday by Future bloc, which, according to him, MP Fouad Siniora had devoted to level false accusations.

“Everybody knows that those accusations only apply to Siniora’s mandate,” the Minister said.

“The Ministry of Finance does not need a certificate from somebody who is accused and under accountability,” he added.

“Siniora had best confront us and we defy him to meet before the public opinion and judicial authorities to pursue him for corruption and public funds waste,” he concluded.
