He continued, “However, we soon discovered that they were ordinary papers on which a picture of the $100 bill was printed, expecting that it would be for one of the institutions that, for example, is concerned with filming a movie or something similar, according to the type of attached papers.”
And he added, “The container was parked in an area devoid of residential buildings and therefore there are no surveillance cameras, and the area is known as Dahr El-Gamal, which is completely parallel to the course of the Beirut River.”
“We soon informed the Internal Security Forces, which in turn raised the issue to the Public Prosecution to follow up the investigation of the event that was buzzing with the media and social networking sites, and based on this matter, the security forces received the file and began their investigations to find out the source of these funds and how they reached the containers,” he said.
