The Libyan military prosecutor of the Defense Ministry has ordered the arrest of four military leaderships from Khalifa Haftar's forces, including Haftar himself.

The arrest warrant is after Haftar, the commander of judiciary and control authority of Haftar's forces Oun Al-Furjani, Chief of Staff of Haftar's forces appointed by Tobruk-based House of Representatives, Abdelrazik Al-Nathori, and Al-Sharif Al-Buzaidi.

"Ongoing investigations are following up on a lawsuit by Hussam Abuajila Anbais for the abduction and killing of Abuajila Anbais, Muhannad Anbais, Hamza Barbash, and the torture and kidnap of Hussam himself in Esbea district in southern Tripoli on September 24 by Russian armed group fighting for Haftar's forces." The arrest warrant says.

The military prosecutor ordered immediate apprehension of the four persons and sending them directly to his office, tasking security personnel of investigating the Russian armed group's presence and whereabouts as well as other details to take the needed legal measures against them.

The only survivor of the Russian massacre of Wagner Group mercenaries in Esbea district, Hussam Anbais, filed a lawsuit against Haftar and accused him of bringing Russian mercenaries, kidnapping and killing his father, brother and brother-in-law.
