Tunis, 4 April 2015:
Over LD 9 bn were sent to Libya’s embassies for the care of war injured . . .[restrict]since the 17th February 2011 revolution, revealed the House of Representatives (HoR), Libya’s only internationally recognized parliament based in the eastern city of Tobruk.
Speaking to Alyoum Alsaba Egyptian newspaper last week, the head of the HoR (war) Injured, Martyrs and Missing Committee, Abdulminam Buhassan, said that the ‘’Committees that had been formed in that period had misappropriated those funds’’.
He added that his committee is currently reducing the number of embassies abroad concerned with healthcare for the war injured and is cancelling all overseas healthcare committees.
Buhassan added that upon taking up their work, the HoR war injured Committee ‘‘found much misappropriation in the money sent abroad for the injured’’.
The manipulation of funds reached the extent of money laundering between embassies and the transfer of medical treatment from one embassy to another, added the HoR member. [/restrict]
