Tripoli, 18 September 2014:
Ghariyan citizens and former revolutionaries demonstrated in front of the office of the public prosecutor in their city yesterday to express . . .[restrict]their deep disapproval of the release of two prisoners associated with the Qaddafi regime.
The protestors complained of inadequate investigations into the crimes of those released, saying this dishonoured the “blood of the martyrs” and did not bring justice to their families. They also accused the public prosecutor of being corrupt.
Specifically, they said the prosecutor had failed to complete the required procedures related to victims’ complaints, citing crimes committed by the two accused over a period of years. These included embezzlement of public funds as well as crimes committed during the revolution.
The protestors alleged that there were “elements of the former regime buried within the office of the public prosecutor” who had not been dismissed from their offices or kept away from the investigations into crimes related to the revolution. [/restrict]
