Spokesman for the defence team hired by Libyan families to sue Khalifa Haftar in the US, Kevin Carroll has said that Haftar is being charged for his involvement in six murder cases, as well as acts of torture and kidnappings.

"These crimes have caused great harm to the families of the victims," Carroll told a press conference Monday. "Haftar lacks immunity of the heads of states and could be prosecuted in the United States," he underscored.

According to the American lawyer, Haftar and his family own 17 properties in Virginia worth $ 8 million, which could be used to compensate the victims.
