There is no justification for these crises except that the governor of the Banque du Liban is delaying the payment of the value of the imported fuel.Walid Dib, May 25, 2021Tweet The union official recalls that the fuels are only unloaded after payment of the sums due. He then estimates that importing companies cannot deliver to distributors and stations for fear of running out of stock. He thus calls on local officials to reveal the background of the case and designate the people responsible for these delays. As a reminder, two weeks ago, the governor of the Banque du Liban Riad Salam\u00e9 confirmed that the correspondent banks of the BdL had decided to close a number of its accounts because of the increased risk of default on the part of the latter. This would notably be the case - for the Banque du Liban - with dollar accounts with Wells Fargo, sterling accounts with HSBC, Swedish krona with Danske and Canadian dollar accounts with CIBS.
