President of the Presidential Council, Fayiz Asarraj, said that the governor of the Central Bank of Libya, Asidiq Al-Kabeer, interferes in everything other than his jurisdiction and wants to interfere in all state institutions, stressing that they have reached a dead end in dealing with him.
Asarraj added in a visual speech, Wednesday, that the Central Bank refused to spend the emergency budget estimated at 3 and a half billion only after the financial arrangements were adopted, and he tried to raise the foreign exchange rate to more than 5 dinars, and we insisted on rejecting it.
Asarraj indicated that he was surprised by the closing of the central Bank to the cash sale system without referring to the presidential council and he demanded the change of the exchange rate to reopen it.
Asarraj questioned the wisdom of closing the system of selling foreign currency at a time when the country is suffering as a result of the Coruna Virus outbreak, which has ravaged major countries and he has refrained from spending the salaries of three months without justification
Asarraj confirmed that the Central Bank prevented the directors of its departments from communicating with the directors of the departments of the Ministry of Finance during the preparation of the financial arrangements,
It should be noted that the Minister of Economy Ali Alissawi confirmed, last Monday, that the Central Bank has been making transfers and opening credits for all purposes without coordination with the Ministry, and exceeded our approval to open credits to specific companies separately outside the import budget during 2017 and 2018 in large amounts.
