The Chairman of the National Oil Corporation (NOC), Mustafa Sanallah, has called on the international community to impose sanctions against 48 people and entities loyal to warlord Khalifa Haftar on Tuesday, including the head of the parallel National Oil Corporation in Benghazi, Faraj Hassi.

The British newspaper, The Guardian, said that Sanallah addressed a letter to the United Nations Sanctions Committee and foreign embassies, confirming what he described as contracts made by Haftar`s long term allies, which are contrary to United Nations resolutions to buy Libyan oil.

The National Oil Corporation is in the process of releasing documents, which show illegal contracts made by the parallel illegal institution, pointing out that these contracts could equate to the loss of at least $800 million to the Libyan state.
