Lebanese former Prime Minister Saad Hariri’s file emerges again in reports of local media outlets, where financial scandals remain at the top.
The Lebanese Broadcasting Corporation International (LBCI) broadcast a report Tuesday in which new facts of Hariri were revealed.
“Since the beginning of August, Hariri visited Qatar several times and accompanied Qatari PM Hamad Ben Jasem Al Thani in a trip to Riyadh on August 13th, where they met Saudi King Abdallah,” the report said.
“Circulating information reported that Hariri managed to get 4 billion dollars from Qatar and KSA. This money will help Hariri get through his financial crisis,” LBCI added.
The media channel noted however that a big share of this bonus will be dedicated for saving Saudi Oger which managed to fire more than17000 employees.
The reports also expected that those who will benefit the most from this Bonus are Future TV’s employees as their salaries will be raised by 2.5 to 5%.
For his part, information bureau of MP Saad Hariri denied in a statement the facts contained in LBCI report saying “they are completely untrue just like an earlier report by the same channel stating that Hariri is about to go bankrupt.”
“LBCI focus on spreading false news about Mr. Hariri and its continuing incitement against him coincide with the news spread on the TV station chief Mr. Pierre Daher’s meetings with the Syrian intelligence official Ali al-Mamlook,” the statement read.
