London, 19 March 2018:

The Defence Ministry of the Presidency Council’s Government of National Accord has confirmed the kidnapping of the Military Prosecutor, Masoud Rehouma.

The confirmation came after news of his kidnapping circulated on social media and some media outlets since Thursday. Yesterday, the Presidency Council’s Defence Ministry issued a statement condemning his kidnapping.

It called for his immediate release and warned of the consequences of his ‘‘unlawful’’ kidnapping. It gave no further details.

The kidnapping highlights the limited power and effectiveness of state security services and follows in the footsteps of other high-profile kidnappings.
