Tripoli, 17 October 2013:
An adviser to Attorney General, Abdel Qadar Radwan, has denied saying anything about Libyan . . .[restrict]politicians being involved in trying to bribe those involved in the eastern oil terminals lockdown.
Earlier media reports claimed that he had said that documents found inside Ali Zeidan’s briefcase, when he was kidnapped by members of the Libyan Revolutionaries Operations Room in collaboration with the Counter Crime Agency, proved the Prime Minister’s involvement in trying to bribe to Ibrahim Jadhran to reopen the terminals.
In a statement today, Radwan categorically denied the reports, saying that the investigation into what had happened was still ongoing and that no statements whatsoever had been made.
Last month, Ibrahim Jadhran revealed that the then head of the Congress energy committee, Naji Mukhtar, had given his brother Salem cheques to the value of LD 30 million, claiming that these were bribes designed to reopen the oil terminals and that the Prime Minister had been involved in the plan.
Zeidan has firmnly denied this. [/restrict]
