The Finance Ministry has given the go-ahead for Central Bank of Libya to pay salaries of state employees for the months of January and February 2017.

The ministry said the salary vouchers were sent to CBL according to the national ID number. The payment was delayed after the Audit Bureau halted the procedure after discovering corruption in the Budget Department of the ministry.

The Audit Bureau suspended the director of the department from work and charged him with money wasting after he referred state employees’ salaries to the CBL without national ID verification.
