Libyan Crimes Watch said the legal advisor Salah Beltamer was arrested by gunmen in Marj town on Saturday, adding that relatives said the reason of the arrest was Beltamer's criticism of arbitrary detention of judiciary officials and personnel.

Libyan Crimes Watch added in a statement that lawyer Seraj Al-Fitouri had been also arrested and prevented from entering Benghazi' military court for work, saying another lawyer named Adnan Al-Erifi was also arrested.

It also said that the military prosecutor Faraj Al-Sosae, head of military court in Benghazi Salim Al-Firjani are responsible for the violations against judiciary personnel in the city, calling for the immediate release of all the detainees without any preconditions.

Libyan Crimes Watch said such violations in Benghazi are crimes punishable by local and international laws.

Meanwhile, a lawyer from Benghazi named Hanan Al-Burasi had been kidnapped from her house after appearing on Saturday in a video criticizing the violations, arbitrary detention and kidnapping in Benghazi, warning Haftar of a similar fate to that of Gaddafi as Libyans would revolt against him any time soon if his wrongdoing continued.
