A Twitter post was made by the Dutch ambassador to Libya, Eric Strating on his personal account on Tuesday, announcing the release of Dutch activist Yvonne Snitjer.

The Dutch ambassador said that Snitjer, who disappeared one day before the start of the month of Ramadan, was able to leave Libya without any hassle and expressed thanks to those who contributed to her safe removal from the country without giving any further details.

The activist Yvonne Snitjer had been living in the capital Tripoli for years, where she founded a special educational center, and has had several appearances on Dutch media regarding the situation in Libya.
