Sanalla: I’m still the actual NOC Chairman, not the fake one

The ousted Chairman of the Libyan National Oil Corporation (NOC), Mustafa Sanalla, who has rejected his dismissal decision by the Prime Minister, Abdul Hamid Dbeibah, told the Financial Times in an interview on Friday that the decision to replace him with Farhat Bengrada was “void” and had been made by a government with an “expired mandate’‘.

“We have taken all the possible legal measures,” Sanalla said, adding that they have reached out to the courts and to the public prosecutor and that he is still the actual chair of NOC, not the fake one – referring to Bengrada.

Sanalla also complained that “a force of 40 masked, armed men” had broken into NOC headquarters on Thursday morning, breaking doors and beating up staff to let in a committee appointed by the government to make handover preparations to the new board of directors.
