Khalifa Al-Ghweil's letter to Ban Ki-moon

The Salvation Government has called on the Secretary-General of the United Nations Ban Ki-moon to halt any action or act, whether legal or illegal, by the UN-imposed government before the GNC takes decision regarding this government.

Khalifa Al-Ghweil warned in a letter addressed to Ban Ki-moon that his government would take all the relevant legal and security measures according to Libyan legislations in force in order to maintain Libya's sovereignty and to ensure the safety of the homeland.

On the other hand, Prime Minister Al-Ghweil decided to refer some military personnel to questioning in the light of the military security arrangements of the UN-imposed government.

In a letter to the military prosecutor, Al-Ghweil explained that the decision to form a committee for security arrangements constitutes a crime according to the military and general penalties codes.

The formation of the committee was conducted by an illegal party and outside of the Libyan state and thus would incite violence and instigate rebellion in the Libyan army, the letter says.

Al-Ghweil, acting as defense minister, called for an urgent investigation of the persons enlisted in the list of the security arrangements and to quickly take legal actions towards them.

Meanwhile, the Head of the EU of Delegation to Libya Nataliya Apostolova welcomed the formation of the committee, saying it is another important step in the implementation of the Libyan Political Agreement. 

The UN-imposed government headed by Brigadier-General Abdul-Rahman Al-Taweel to facilitate the implementation of the security arrangements to pave the way for the government to enter Tripoli. The committee was rejected by Khalifa Haftar ally in the presidency council Ali Al-Gotrani.
