Mohammed Ismail, Budget Department Director General at Finance Ministry of the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA) , said that the Ministry of Finance spent 25 million, in 2017 and 2018, to purchase cars of various types, including ambulance and security vehicles.
He said the Presidential Council of GNA had decided to buy cars for security men and diplomatic delegations, adding that they were essential and necessary.
Ismail also confirmed, on a television interview, “The Ministry of Finance suffers from not paying taxes, electricity and other services by citizens, so there is no revenue, and that the decisions can not be implemented by the ministry on all Libyan cities, especially in the Eastern region, and that the political divide caused a gap where we can not apply the system of taxes collection to all cities. “
