Identical sources have confirmed the arrest of the head of the Passports Authority in the eastern region, Brigadier Hamdi Al-Obeidi upon his return from Tripoli.

Al-Obeidi was recalled twice, last week; the first call was by the head of the regulatory authority, Aoun al-Farjani, and then he appeared before Benghazi military police, where he was arrested and transferred to Qirnada prison.

Al-Obeidi participated in a press conference at the Interior Ministry HQ of the Government of National Accord (GNA) in Tripoli last March.
