The Chairman of the Economic Committee of the Supreme Council of State Mohamed Takala, on Tuesday, claimed to open an investigation on the Libyan funds frozen in Belgium, after the reports that concluded the disposal of about 5 billion euros from the sovereign fund.
In a statement to the Al-Arabi Ajadeed newspaper, Takalah said that there is communication with the Presidential Council on taking clarifications from Belgium on the frozen funds’ matter and demand an investigation on the information raised in this context.
He questioned the validity of information about the disposal of these frozen funds and at whose disposal it was and for whom? “Especially that these funds are frozen in accordance with the decision of the Security Council and can not be disposed of.”
The Belgian government’s radio revealed during a program the disappearance of about 5 billion euros of the frozen Libyan funds in Belgian banks, which was denied by the Libyan Investment Corporation later in a statement last Thursday.
