The chief of the Libyan security arrangements committee of the Interior Ministry, Ramadan Zarmouh, said they are closely following the implementation process of the security measures to end any possible resurfacing of fighting in Tripoli.

Zarmouh said in a TV interview on Sunday that there is no pressure by the UNSMIL to implement the security arrangement, adding that he talked to the senior leaders of the armed groups like Salah Badi and Hashim Besher as well as to some Tarhouna elders.

The Council of Tajoura Elders said in a statement on Sunday that it has some qualms over the continued detention of three persons who have been arrested for "Mitiga incidents" despite the fact that the remainder of persons involved in the incidents are now freed after Souq Jumua and Tajoura's agreement.

"The three prisoners have not been released and are being mistreated as well as their families have been harassed while visiting them in Mitiga prison." The council said.
