Jadu brigade gives up Tripoli base
By Ashraf Abdul-Wahab.
The Tourist Police are to take control of the eastern part of the Regatta beach resort in the west Tripoli suburb of Siyahia.
The move follows two days of talks between Tripoli and Jadu local councils which agreed that it should be handed over to the Ministry of Tourism. The resort, developed by Hannibal Qaddafi, had been the Tripoli base for the Jadu Brigade after the revolution although most of the members have since long departed. However, anxious not to be tarred with the same brush as the Misratans after last weekend’s carnage in Ghargour, the brigade decided that the site should be handed over to appropriate authorities in the capital.
Tripoli Local Council has expressed its appreciation of the Jadu council’s decision to comply with its demands that the capital be free of all militias other than the police and army.
The western part of the Regatta club is being held by forces from Zintan.
