Tripoli, 14 November 2013:
The Military Integrity and Reform Commission has disbarred 915 non-commissioned officers (NCOs) and soldiers for fighting . . .[restrict]for the former regime.
“The Commission decided to dispense with these officers and soldiers because they fought in the ranks of Qaddafi’s battalions during the revolution, and were given medal for injuries sustained during the 6-month conflict,” Commission spokesman Abdulbaset Al-Shaari told the Libya Herald.
The disbarred servicemen now have 20 days in which to appeal against the decision in a Military Court, according to Article No. 3 of the Commision’s Law which was established by the Office of the Chief of Staff.
Al-Shaari said that, so far, the Commission had not received any appeals.
Last month, the Commission disbarred 57 officers, including high-ranking personnel, for having fought for Qaddafi. [/restrict]
