BEIRUT: The head of Lebanon’s Higher Relief Committee, already in custody in connection with embezzling public funds, faced Wednesday more charges in another fraud case.

Financial Prosecutor Ali Ibrahim filed new charges against Bashir and another female HRC employee, charging them with bribery and embezzlement.

Ibrahim referred the case and the defendants to Beirut Investigative Judge Ghassan Oweidat.

Bashir, his wife and another Lebanese couple were charged in November with embezzling public funds and transferring them to private accounts abroad. The four were also charged with money laundering.
