The Government of National Unity (GNU) spokesman Mohamed Hammouda has said that PM Abdul Hamid Dbeibah never intended to accuse Tunisia of trying to control the money of the Libyan people.

The government's spokesman insisted that Dbeibah's remarks, which he made during a workshop on the partnership between the private and public sectors about Libya’s investments and frozen funds abroad, were quoted out of their context.

"PM Dbeibah's statements were quoted in a distorted manner from which they were understood that he accuses the brotherly state of Tunisia of being involved in attempts to control the money of the Libyan people," the GNU spokesman said, underscoring that what was reported does not represent the PM or the government's point of view.

Hammouda explained that Dbeibah was pointing to the weakness of the Libyan banking system and the need to liberate this sector to alleviate the problems faced by the Libyans, especially with regard to the confiscation of their money abroad, including in Malta, Tunisia, and Belgium.
