Ghat, 29 May 2015:
Security guards in Sebha who have been preventing staff at the Central Bank of Libya’s branch . . .[restrict]in the town from going to work have said that they will continue their blockade until the authorities concede to their demands. They started the action on 6 May.
A spokesman for the protesters, Younis Ali Massoud, said yesterday that although there had been negotiations with the local authorities the (Tripoli-based) government had not responded to their demands, the most important being that the commander of the southern military region be replaced.
Another reported demand is that people who have temporary residence in the town be able to make withdrawals from local banks. The guards are also demanding that the Tripoli government withdraw its rule stopping the payment of salaries to those without a national ID number.
