The United Nations Acting Envoy to Libya, Stephanie Williams, confirmed that she referred reports related to the granting of bribes to members participating in the Libyan Dialogue Forum to influence the proceedings and decisions of the Forum, to a UN expert team for consideration.
“Williams” – at the conclusion of the forum session – on Monday, said that those who obstruct the political process may be subject to sanctions, confirming that the mission contacted the Acting Libyan Attorney General, “Counselor Ibrahim Masoud”, to address this issue.
She reassured “Williams,” the members of the forum that once the information concerning allegations of bribery becomes available they would be the first to know, saying she will not have tolerance with those who incited violence against members of the Forum, noting that the mission observed a number of publications relating to incitement against members and reported them to omit them.
“Williams added that the members of the forum made important strides forward, raising the ceiling of the hopes and aspirations of Libyans, in holding national elections, and that a lot of work needs to be done to lift the suffering of the Libyans.”
Last Sunday, 9 human rights and community organizations called on the Attorney General to investigate allegations of financial bribes for members of the Libyan Political Forum in Tunis.
