Government spokesman asks Attorney General to probe oil sector closures

The spokesman for the Government of National Unity (GNU), Mohammed Hammouda, said the gas supply crisis that is caused by the blockade on oil production and exports led to losing about 1000 megawatts of the public grid’s power.

“Continued blockade will aggressively the crisis as per the estimation of the General Electricity Company of Libya (GECOL) and experts. The GNU is still working with all GECOL staffers to overcome the gas shortage crisis and its impact on the grid, forming an operations room of oil, defense and interior ministries to find a solution, however; the cause is linked directly to the halted oil production and exports.” Hammouda said.

He indicated that the GNU calls on the Public Prosecutor to probe the blockade of oil fields which, together with justification by political parties of this closure, constitutes a crime against Libyans, vowing that the GNU will hold the perpetrators accountable.
