Nine legal organizations and civil societies have lodged a complaint with the Libyan Attorney General over the “bribes given to participants of the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum in Tunisia this month”.
In a statement Sunday, the organizations expressed shock at the circulated news of “political money” being used at the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum to buy votes for certain names to win positions at the new executive authorities.
“We are awaiting the revelation of results of the investigation that has been announced by the Acting UN Envoy to Libya Stephanie Williams.” The statement reads.
They explained that the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum members who would be found guilty of the bribes’ accusations should be dismissed from the upcoming dialogue sessions and those names who were behind the money should be deprived from being nominated for any position at the Presidential Council and Government.
“Selecting the participants of the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum should have been more transparent and careful and people whose names were stained in the past with any misdeeds and misconduct shouldn’t have been invited to be part of the dialogue.” The statement adds.
The organizations and civil societies said the allegations of bribery threaten the integrity of the Political Dialogue and that they need to know the results of the investigation so that the outcomes of the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum can be respected afterwards.
