Tripoli, 23 June 2015:
The . . .[restrict]“government” of Khalifa Ghwell in Tripoli has announced that it intends to seize assets and properties belonging to a number of political figures politicians together plus those of four companies.
The names listed in the announcement are all known to be strongly opposed to the Muslim Brotherhood. They are:
- Abdulrahman Shalgham, the former representative if Libya to the UN;
- Mahmud Jebril, the head of the National Forces Alliance;
- Abdullah Naker, the self promiting former head of Tripoli Revolutionaries’ Council and founder of Al-Qimma party;
- Airforce General Saqr Adam Geroushi, head of the Libyan National Army’s air force;
- Ibrahim Dabashi, the current representative of Libya to the UN; and finally
- Fatima Hamroush, former Health Minister.
Responding to the announcement, Hamroush said that listing her name proved that Ghwell’s government was run by militiamen not interested in the law or due legal process. They were ignorant, she said, and were motivated purely by revenge against their enemies. She highlighted the recent kidnapping of Tunisian diplomats by Libya Dawn an an example of them riding roughshod over the law. They were seized, she said, to exchange them for a militiaman, Walid Gleib, arrested by the Tunisian authrotieis and accused of terrorism offences.
She said that all she owns in Tripoli is a private home.
Names of the companies listed are:
- Tourism Investment Company;
- Africa Company for Investments;
- Babel Maritime Agency Company;
- The National Holding Company for Construction.
Two of those on the list, Abdulrahman Shalgham and Ibrahim Dabashi, have been rumoured to be candidates for the planned government of national accord.
