Charles Ayoub accuses Aoun of stealing $75 million

Charles Ayoub, Al-Diyar newspaper editor-in-chief accused General Michel Aoun of stealing $75 million US dollars from the Lebanese Ministry of Finance before he fled his headquarters in Baabda, where he was leading the war against the Syrian army.

“All men have the right to speak but not cowards .” Ayoub said

Describing how Aoun fled in his pyjamas to the French embassy in 1990 he said :

“Military commanders always remains at the head of their and should be in the forefront, while General Aoun fled his headquarters in Baabda, where he was leading the war against the Syrian army to the French embassy, ​​leaving behind his wife and three daughters , without any consideration for the dignity, honor and the safety of his wife and daughters.”

Aoun, 74, was forced into exile after being defeated in a Syrian offensive in 1990 at the end of Lebanon’s 15-year civil war.

Aoun returned in May 2005, a month after Damascus ended 29 years of military domination in Lebanon.

On the stealing of the money from the Ministry of Finance Ayoub said:

“I ask you General Michel Aoun, who stole money from the Ministry of Finance and deposited it in his accounts. In one account $38 million dollars was deposited and in another account $ 37 million. Both accounts were put in your name and the name of your wife Nadia. Why did you put the money in your name and your wife’s name only and not the names of Major General Edgar Maalouf or Maj. Gen. Issam Abu Jamra who were your comrades in the battle against the Syrian army?

He challenged Aoun to deny stealing the money

“If you deny taking the money ( $ 38 million and $ 37 million to France) , I am ready to publish the documents on your accounts”. Ayoub said.

Aoun who heads the change and Reform bloc has been accusing the March 14 alliance of corruption.

  • Iit seems that charles ayoub lost at the casino again last night and is looking for a payday by attacking the leaders of his own sect.

    Just last month he wrote lies on Patriarch Bechara Rai who is the Spritual Leader of the Christians and now he published science fiction against the Political Leader of the Christians.

      Aoun is not the political leader of the Christians moron…

      • You are
        right, although he has the largest Christian Bloc in Lebanon’s parliament he
        is also a National Leader representing the aspirations of all honorable
        Lebanese.

        Many
        better than you (including nations and superpowers) have tried to tarnish his good name and honorable positions and
        failed so what makes you think that a nobody like you and a gambling addict like charles
        ayoub will get anywhere?

      Yes indeed !!  Publish ALL … I’m sure Wikileakers don’t have all the answers … and probably pick and choose as well.

    • libnan1

      Yes and Yes, publish a complete account of all thieves. I’ve been hearing about Aoun’s accusations for as long as I remember and nothing came out, where is the beef? I listened to couple interviews with this Charles guy from 2007 where he made sense, now he is looking for cash. What is the best way to get it? go after the fearless leader Aoun, the one with the BALLS.

    aoun should be held resposible for all the crimes he commited against the lebaneese people and the state ,this man had ordered the army to turn there canons and rockets on east beirut as a result of his criminal action thousands of christans civilians and others had died and thousands  had migrated, there homes were destroyed  ,  and if he had the chance he will do it again, for his own personnel gain and interrest , he is a lier and criminals, and a thief and could,nt be trusted ,he does,nt care about no one but himself ; the lebaneese people and state should bring him to court and posecute him and should never let him get away with his crimes , and set example for other traitors ,that they will also be held responsible ; and for the lebaneese people do,nt forget to bring along nasrallah his partner in crime also to the lebaneese court  ,nasrallah is another criminal who has destroyed lebanon and has lebaneese people blood on his hand

      I wish Mr. Ayoub can publish the names of all leaders since civil war that stole peoples money from government and honestly I can not tell who did not steal, this monkey gene we need to get rid off, so how government civil service division  will straighten out if government official dip their hands in to project funds for their own use. The leaders that are guilty of stealing should be exposed and prosecuted, so future leaders will think twice before doing so.

        In this supposed ‘Confessional Parliamentary Democracy’, uniquely ‘Lebanese’, which was invented to stop a 25-yr. war, which has not really stopped, it’s about time there was some confessing going on.
        But then, the democracy was stolen after the last election anyway. And Hezzys don’t believe in confessing anything.
        PUBLISH EVERYTHING … so we can really see what Allah and various other versions of God have ‘willed’ to us.

        Oh … yes, perhaps that sounds slightly Jewish doesn’t it … tsk on me.
        But then … all their stories, collected and published, have made a rich history – for those who care to read and collate it.
        Why not a Lebanese history – from the memories which have not yet been blown away. ???
        (Perhaps too radical an idea…)

    They accuse you of stealing money
    But in reality you brought Lebanon nothing but honey
    Their fixation with your heroism is nothing funny
    They hold evidence no one can find even when it’s sunny
    With 27 MPs you can just poof and they will run like a bunny
