Journalist deletes tweet after ISF summonsA local journalist has removed a tweet in which he said that a local bank branch was not dispensing dollars, after he was summoned to appear before the Cybercrimes Bureau. Amer Chibani, who worked as a journalist with Future TV and now works on the Al Mustaqbal news site, told The Daily Star that he had gone to a branch of SGBL bank Tuesday morning to withdraw cash for a $600 car payment. A day before Chibani's tweet, the office of President Michel Aoun released a statement pointing out that there are sections in Lebanon's criminal code allowing for the prosecution of those who publish material that would threaten the stability of the economy or the currency.
