Tunisians accuse Haftar of disappearance of 2 journalists



The commander of the Dignity Operation, General Khalifa Haftar, arrived in Tunis, on Monday, to meet the Tunisian President, Beji Caid Essebsi.

The National Union of Tunisian Journalists took the chance to accuse Haftar of the disappearance of the two Tunisian journalists, Sufian Al-Shawarbi and Natheer Al-Katari in Libya since 8/September/2014.

The Tunisian Journalists Union stressed that Haftar is responsible for the disappearance of the two journalists because they were missed in the lands that controlled by him.

The union considered that the no one of the factions in Libya, including Haftar, had cooperated to release the two journalists despite the official and nonofficial Tunisian calls to reveal the fate of Al-Shawarbi and Al-Katari. The union added that the silence of the Libyan factions makes the case more suspicious.

In the same context, the union called Essebsi to make the case one of the core points in his schedule with Haftar. It also called Haftar and the other Libyan factions to prove their goodwill in dealing with the issue.

On another side, the Al-Katari’s mother announced that she had tried to meet Haftar but she couldn’t despite the promise of the relative of the former Tunisian president, Bin Ali, to arrange a meeting for her with Haftar.

It is worth mentioning that the two journalists disappeared on 8/September/2014 nearby Ajdabiya, but some factions, including Daesh, announced that they were killed without any detailed information.
