Tripoli, 5 April 2015:
Concern is growing for an Indian IT professional working in Tripoli on a registration database, . . .[restrict]who has not been heard of for a week.
Reji Joseph is alleged to have been seized at his office in the Civil Registration Authority along with a number of other unnamed colleagues.
The 43-year old IT specialist moved to Tripoli two years ago with this wife Sheeja and their three children. She works in the capital as a nurse. The last time Joseph spoke to her was on 31 March. Relatives have complained of the lack of action by Joseph’s employers.
Following the recent death of an Indian nurse and her child, killed by a shell that hit their Zawia home, the Indian government has reportedly been planning to evacuate its remaining 1,800 nationals. The Tripoli embassy is currently relocated in the Tunisian resort of Djerba.
In 2011 during the Revolution India sent Air India airliners and a warship to take 15,000 Indians out of Libya. [/restrict]
