Ali Al-Tikbali

The Libyan National Oil Corporation (NOC) has accused the member of the Tobruk-based House of Representatives (HoR) Ali Al-Tikbali of incitement and spreading rumors against it.

The NOC said Wednesday in a statement on Facebook that it had taken notice of the dangerous claims made by Al-Tikbali and will take the necessary legal measures to file "four complaints" at the Attorney General's Office.

It also said that it had received a written letter that says the Public Prosecution is mulling lifting parliamentary immunity on Al-Takbali until he appears in court for prosecution.

"Al-Takbali must appear before the Attorney General and renounce his immunity after rebuttals of his allegations are provided and showed to the public." The NOC added.

It remarked that Al-Tikbali's acts violate the UN Security Council's resolutions about the oil sector in Libya.

Al-Tikbali accused the Chairman of the NOC Mustafa Sanallah of squandering Libyans' fortunes and resources by making oil contracts with British companies, besides being a representative of Muslim Brotherhood's agenda and thus working against "Libyan Armed Forces" (Haftar's forces.)

He said that the appointment of the "oil lord" Sanallah was illegally done by Muslim Brotherhood, adding that Sanallah is preventing Haftar's forces leadership and Interim Government from selling oil in east Libya as "he is monopolizing oil selling in contracts he made with British companies."
