The Address | Benghazi – Libya
TRIPOLI – Sadiq Al-Ghariani, former Grand Mufti of the General National Conference said that the spread of bribery among people is one of the major sins and a sign of the decay of nations and their fall.
Sadiq Al-Ghariani pointed out, during a televised interview on Tanasuh TV on Wednesday, that bribery has many aspects that cannot be limited. “The bribery, for example, means to help someone in illegally achieving something and they do the same to you. In some cases, bribery can be presented in signing a document that hands over Libya in a political agreement. Such an unjust deal worked in our country and it was a disaster for the country. It is a losing deal “. Al-Ghariani said.
He said that the sale of Libya to foreigners has resulted in several repercussions, including the country’s electricity outage. He commented on the meeting of the European countries in Rome two weeks ago saying that they discussed the fate of Libya and decided on the behalf of Libyans everything related to their future.
“The leaders of the February 17th rebels were also bribed by various kinds of bribes, including those who were appointed in the diplomatic corps, some of them were just sent to live abroad in Switzerland, Turkey, or Egypt.
Sadiq Al-Ghariani is a radical cleric and is considered the highest spiritual leader for Jihadist in Libya. Several extremist armed groups declared their pledge to him such as the Shura Council of Mujahideen in Derna and The Shura Council of Benghazi.
He was also praised by Mokhtar Belmokhtar, leader of al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb in an official statement in 2016 for his “brave positions” in supporting Jihadists in Libya.
Al-Ghariani was banned from the UK over support of Islamists and for celebrating the violent capture of Tripoli by Islamist militia force Libya Dawn in 2014.
