The Students Union at Tripoli University organized a stand on Thursday to protest against the non-disbursal of their outstanding financial grants for over four years.

The protesters demanded the disbursement of the late grants of 200 dinars per month, after what they described as the easing of the financial and economic crisis in the country.

Students of universities and higher institutes receive a monthly grant since 2012 based on a government decision, as a form of support; however, the grant has been suspended since 2015 due to the economic crisis.
