Tripoli, 5 January 2014:
A group of Congresswomen were in Tobruk on Saturday in a bid to do what no . . .[restrict]one else has managed in the past half year – to resolve the dispute that has closed the town’s Hariga oil terminal.
“We have examined the demands of the protesters at Hariga port,” Beida Congresswoman Zainab Al-Targhi, told the Libya Herald, “and in fact what they are asking for are rights, not demands”.
The workers, she said had not been provided with the right equipment and facilities to do their work. Sympathising with their position, she added that they were suffering from “a lack of support from the government”.
A full report of the visit would be written and passed on to the government so it could discuss the situation as soon as possible.
However, she declared, it had to create the right conditions for staff to return to work normally at the port. [/restrict]
