Tripoli, 13 February 2014:
In reply to a question from the media at yesterday’s press conference, Prime . . .[restrict]Ali Zeidan said that the intelligence services need time to be rebuilt.
The question posed to the Prime Minister was how was it that Libya’s Military Intelligence were strong and able enough to detect the recent meeting of military officers, allegedly discussing the possibility of returning Libya to military rule, yet have been totally unable to make any intelligence breakthroughs against the terror and crime campaign across the nation.
Zeidan said that this (weakness of the intelligence services) reflects Libya’s reality. He said that the intelligence agencies had been destroyed during the revolution and that the state was currently in the process of recreating effective agencies.
