LIBYAPROSPECT – Tripoli
The United Nations envoy to Libya, Martin Kobler, said that the closure of the courts and prosecutions compound in the capital of Tripoli is “unacceptable.” He called all Libyan factions to respect the judiciary independence and allow it to adequately perform its duties as a core condition for the state of law.
Kobler said, via his Twitter account, that “the closure of the courts compound in Tripoli is unacceptable. All parties should respect the independence of the judiciary authority and allow it to perform its duties as the main condition for the state of law.”
The Supreme Council of Judiciary holds the criminal investigation unit responsible for the assaults against the courts and prosecutions in the capital, announcing its condemnation for such “irresponsible, dangerous actions.”
The Supreme Council of Judiciary said, in a statement, that “it was surprised, last day, with the criminal investigation unit, authorized by the law to preserve security and fight crimes, assaulting the courts and prosecutions compound, closed it and prevented its members from doing their duties.”
