BEIRUT (AP) — Lebanon has received an Interpol notice for the country’s embattled central bank governor who failed to answer summons and show up in Paris earlier in the week for questioning in a graft case, officials said. France, Germany, and Luxembourg are investigating the governor, Riad Salameh, and his associates in myriad financial crimes, including illicit enrichment and the laundering of $330 million. A French investigative judge earlier this week issued an international arrest warrant for Salameh after he did not appear for a questioning in Paris. No officials were available on Friday to comment on possible actions against Salameh. However, Lebanon does not extradite its own citizens.
