The head of investigations at the Attorney General’s Bureau, Seddiq Al-Sour, said that the release of the former regime official, Mohamed Bin Nayel, was executed without informing the Attorney General, pointing that “Bin Nayel files are still open. Judiciary hasn’t yet issued any final provision, as he wasn’t handed over to the Attorney General in Tripoli for investigations”, according to a statement from the media bureau.
The statement said that “the release of Bin Nayel has been carried within social detainees’ exchange”.
It is worth mentioning that the release of Bin Nayel came within an operation of swapping prisoners between Misrata and El-Magarha tribe on 4th April.
