Sun 17 Mar 2019 at 19:50 Twitter

NNA - "The demand to lift the banking secrecy off the accounts of senior officials will provide a free service to them, since the smuggling of funds and real estate is no longer a complicated matter. There are ways and means of hiding wealth, and very high techniques can be used in this respect," said Elie Mahfoud, Head of the Change Movement, via his Twitter account on Sunday.

He addressed those in demand of adopting this measure, saying: "You are searching in the wrong place, and hence you will contribute to increasing their illegal enrichment."
