UNSMIL has welcomed the release of Dr. Al-Siddiq Ben Della, after four days of his abduction.
UNSMIL called in a statement on Monday for a full and independent inquiry into this incident as well as all incidents of arbitrarily detention, kidnapping perpetrated by armed groups, whom it said “continue to undermine the rule of law across Libya”.
Ben Della, who was kidnapped in Tripoli a few days ago, had been freed from the criminal group that abducted him by the Deterrence Apparatus for Fighting Crime of the Interior Ministry.
The Interior Ministry said its units had stormed into the hideout of the armed group that was abducting the doctor and detained the kidnappers, who will be facing legal criminal charges as per the Libyan laws.
Al-Hadba General Hospital said earlier Sunday that doctor – the deputy director of the hospital – returned home in a very good health condition.
The doctor was abducted by unknown gunmen as he was heading home Tuesday evening.
