Tripoli, 4 June 2013:
Members of Congress are begin asked to fill out a questionnaire to ensure that they meet . . .[restrict]the criteria of the Political Isolation Law, according to Congress spokesman Omar Hemidan.
Speaking today at a press conference, he said that the questions would be set by the Integrity Commission, now renamed the Commission for Implementing the Political Isolation Law Standards.
Congress members will have to answer Yes or No to each question by placing a tick in a box, Hemidan explained.
Any member of the Congress who refuses to complete the questionnaire or lies when doing so will be subject to criminal prosecution, he added.
Congress passed the Political Isolation Law a month ago, following 10 days of militiamen besieging the Foreign and Justice Ministries. When it was passed, Congress instructed Integrity Commission chairman Hilal Senussi and four other members of the commission to implement it, giving them a month to come up with a system to do so.
It is reported that they are unhappy at the lack of support given them to carry out the task. [/restrict]
