Abdulkader Assad sul Libya observer riporta:
LIA denies withdrawing 15 billion euros from its bank accounts
The Libyan Investment Authority (LIA) denied Wednesday withdrawing 15 billion dollars from its bank accounts, saying
it's monitoring legal procedures in Belgium and the news on the media.
LIA said it is under the law and at the service of the judiciary, denying all
the news about withdrawing the assets, saying part of the judicial measures led to the moves of Belgian
Prince Laurent to execute a ruling in his favor against the Ministry of Agriculture to take hold of LIA's assets.
The Belgian judiciary issued an international arrest warrant against the Chairman of the LIA, Ali Mahmoud,
on charges of corruption and embezzlement regarding the lost interest on the LIA's billions at Euroclear Bank.

people obtain money in an illegal manner.
