Tripoli, 28 July 2013:

The Libyan government will prosecute those criminals responsible for illegal activities such as bombings, shootings and assassinations, even if it means resorting to the help of international bodies, Prime Minister Ali Zeidan announced yesterday.

Speaking at a press conference convened to talk about the latest spate of violence in Libya, Zeidan was adamant that his government “will prosecute criminals and bring them to justice”.

“There will be no escape whatever happens. We will insist upon pursuing them”, he added, refuting some critics that his government has been slow and soft on pursuing criminals and armed groups.

“We won’t hesitate, even if we need to use international bodies”, he added presumably referring to the International Criminal Court and Interpol. [/restrict]
