Tripoli-based AG issues arrest warrant against militant fighting on Al-Sarraj’s side

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

TRIPOLI – Director of the Investigation Office of Tripoli’s Attorney General, Saddik al-Sour, has issued an arrest warrant against a militant sanctioned by the United Nations Security Council.

Abd Al Rahman Al-Milad, nicknamed al-Bija, was Commander of the Coast Guard in Zawiya; a group notorious for its involvement in severe human rights abuses against migrants in Libya.

Al-Sour said that the Office of the Attorney General “received security reports which monitored the movements of some individuals wanted by the Public Prosecution for their involvement with groups practicing organized crime,”

Among those individuals, al-Sour said, is Abd Al Rahman Al-Milad as those security reports “indicated that he is present in Tripoli and moving between several areas inside it.”

Indeed, Al-Milad appeared along side militias allied with the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA) in a video circulated around social media websites in which he made threats against the Libyan National Army (LNA) in Tripoli.

Al-Milad is directly linked to violent abuse against migrants and cooperating with migrant traffickers, according to the UN Security Council.
