Tripoli, 10 February 2014:
The Central Bank of Libya (CBL) is to begin withdrawing one-dinar notes bearing the picture . . .[restrict]of Muammar Qaddafi, phasing them out completely in one year’s time.
The CBL has said that the two blue and purple versions of the one dinar note bearing the image of Qadaffi are being removed as of 6 February 2014.
It has asked all citizens to take the notes to banks as soon as possible.
The notes have been replaced by a slightly smaller lilac note depicting revolutionary youth and the independence flag introduced into circulation in February last year. [/restrict]
