Tripoli, 8 December 2013:
The Military Integrity and Reform Commission has disbarred 23 officers for their involvement with the former . . .[restrict]regime.
Nine of those disbarred were found to have helped transport mercenaries from outside of Libya to fight against revolutionary forces, commission spokesman Abdulbaset Al-Shaari told the Libya Herald. They were also said to have hidden bodies of combatants on both sides in order to convince the media and international community that there was no conflict in Libya, he added.
The disbarred servicemen now have 30 days in which to appeal to a military court against the decision.
Last month the Military Integrity and Reform Commission disbarred 915 non-commissioned officers and soldiers. Shaari said that the commission still has hundreds of files to consider on military personnel who fought for the Qaddafi regime .
