Politicians criticize Salame’s statements

The member of the Presidential Council (PC), Mohamed Amari, called the United Nations Envoy to Libya, Ghassan Salame, on Thursday, to apologise for his accusations of corruption against the Libyan politicians.

Amari stressed, in his statement, that Salame’s proclamation could affect the role of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) and distract it away from the core of its original job in Libya.

In the same context, the member of the State Council, Saad Bin Sharrada, had denounced Salame’s statement. He said that he is arranging for suing Salame.

On the other side, 38 members of the House of Representatives (HoR) called, on Friday, the Attorney General to open an investigation on Salame’s statement and his accusations against the politicians.

The HoR members also called Salame to provide his evidence to bring the accused ones to the court.

The HoR members stressed that if Salame doesn’t provide the evidence, they would consider his statements as political blackmail to press on the politicians to obey his orders in the Libyan National Conference.

It is worth mentioning that Salame hadn’t mentioned any specific politicians’ names or positions, which made the issue just a kind of ambiguity.
