Tunis, 12 September 2015:
Misrata and Tawergha continue to push slowly toward reconciliation and have added reparations to the . . .[restrict]issues, including Tawerghan prisoners that they are seeking to resolve.
Progress has been painfully slow since the Misratans told UNSMIL chief Bernardino Leon last May that they were prepared to allow some 30,000 townsfolk to return to Tawergha They had been driven out four years ago because of their support for the Qaddafi regime’s assault on nearby Misrata.
According to UNSMIL, the latest meeting of the Misrata-Tawergha Joint Committee in Tunis yesterday agreed to set out a clear plan for reparations, including a way of working out damages.
The Misratans also appear to have agreed further releases of Tawerghans detained, most of them for approaching four years. The most recent releases just over a fortnight ago saw 15 detainees walk free.
UNSMIL, which is supporting reconciliation, said that the members of the joint committee had agreed on the agenda for their next meeting, but it revealed neither the details nor the date.
