The Address | Benghazi – Libya
Presidency Council (PC) member Fathi al-Majbari has written to the UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, telling him that the Government of National Accord in Tripoli has been financing militias as well as terrorists.
In a no-holds-barred letter to Guterres on the political situation in Tripoli, dispatched via the UN’s special envoy in Libya, Ghassan Salamé, he accused Sarraj of abusing the powers granted to him under the Libyan Political Agreement by making decisions unilaterally. He accused the Government of National Accord (GNA) of allowing itself to became “an incubator” for terrorism. Terrorists were being allowed to re-establish themselves in the country.
He also accused the GNA of using mercenary fighter pilots to bomb Libya’s towns. Money was being handed over to criminals and state funds were being used to attack the Libyan army, which had defeated terrorism in the east and the south of the country.
It was doing this, al-Majbari said because it was desperate to remain in power.
He called on the United Nations to rein it in.
