The former Lebanese Prime Minister Fouad Siniora announced on Thursday his refusal to appear before the financial prosecutor on the case of spending $11 billion without documentation during his premiership in 2006-2008.
Prosecutor Ali Ibrahim, who is following the case, requested Siniora to testify on the case, according to the official Lebanese news agency.
Siniora told the London-based daily Asharq Al-Awsat he would not accept Ibrahim’s request.
At a news conference in March, the former prime minister said the money was “all spent based on the principle and the provisions of the Constitution and financial laws”.
