Libyan National Security Advisor discusses with US ambassador issue of Abu Agila’s trial in Washington

The Libyan National Security Adviser, Ibrahim Bushnaf, discussed with the US Special Envoy and Ambassador to Libya, Richard Norland, the repercussions of the detention of Libyan citizen Abu Agila Masoud Al-Maryami in the US.

This discussion came in a phone call on Monday evening, where the two sides reviewed procedures related to detention conditions, according to a statement on Bushnaf’s Facebook page on Tuesday.

Bushnaf expressed the concern of Libyans about reports that Masud was transferred to the US in order to prosecute him in an alleged connection to the Lockerbie case.

Norland confirmed that statements will be issued later by the US Department of Justice and Secretary of State Antony Blinken, reassuring Libyans and the Libyan National Security Adviser that the US will respect Libyan sovereignty during the course of legal procedures.
