Foreign Lobby Report: Haftar ended US lobbying following battlefield defeats

Foreign Lobby Report said Thursday that Linden Government Solutions terminated its registration on behalf of Khalifa Haftar‘s militias effective June 19 2020.

Citing a new Lobbying Disclosure Act (LDA) filing, Linden told Foreign Lobby Report on Thursday that it is in the process of also terminating a duplicate registration under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA).

The Decision Support Center of Libya — Haftar’s diplomatic wing — hired Houston-based Linden in May 2019 amid mixed messages from the Donald Trump administration over its support for Tripoli.

According to the report, the contract between the lobbying firm and Haftar was for $2 million until June 16, with an option to renew.

The Executive Vice President of Linden Government Solutions, Joseph Fleming, said: “We didn’t end up continuing to engage with Haftar due to the ongoing situation there.”
