The Libyan Presidential Council announced the release of Muammar Gaddafi's personal secretary Ahmed Ramadan as well as a number of "political prisoners" whose jail terms had ended or hadn't been charged.

The Presidential Council said the release comes as part of national reconciliation efforts and added that it would continue its work to achieve comprehensive reconciliation and coordinate to free all prisoners who haven't been charged with any crimes.

It also said that it reiterated in last April in a meeting with the Justice Minister Halima Ibrahim to release all arbitrarily held prisoners with no crime charges and send those who are held pending legal measures to courts as soon as possible to achieve justice and respect human rights.

Meanwhile, Muammar Gaddafi's son Al-Saadi was released on Sunday upon a release order by the Attorney General as the spokesman of the Government of National Unity Mohammed Hammouda said the Prime Minister instructed authorities not to keep any prisoners behind bars if they are not charged for crimes.

Sources said Al-Saadi went to Turkey after release and he would leave for Egypt to join his mother who is staying in Cairo.
