Tripoli, 5 January 2014:
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is again working normally having been seized by protestors on . . .[restrict]29 December. Calling themselves “The Honourable People of Libya” they had demanded the Congress to pass a vote of no confidence in the Prime Minister, Ali Zeidan.
“The ministry has started its regular work on Thursday afternoon following up urgently on issues that were delayed,” the spokesman of the ministry, Saad Al-Aswad, told the Libya Herald. “It must be noted that there was no damage or vandalism in the offices. None of the protesters entered them,” he added.
The protesters “just wanted to record their stance in the media” by reading a statement of their demands, he said. They had stayed in the ministry for just four days and left voluntarily on Thursday afternoon.
Last spring, protestors demanding Congress pass the Political Isolation Law seized and held the Foreign Ministry for over a week.
Congress is due to debate a vote of no confidence in the Prime Minister today. [/restrict]
