Malta, 28 August 2015:
The pro . . .[restrict]Libya Dawn-GNC Al-Naba TV station widely believed to be owned by Abdelhakim Belhaj celebrated its second anniversary with Abdulrahman Swehli, Belhaj and former GNC president Nurri Abusahmain as its guests of honour.
Al-Naba is one of the very few television stations still able to operate in Tripoli as all non-Libya Dawn-GNC supporting media were forced to leave the capital for security reasons.
Independent local and international media are unable to freely report from Tripoli if they do not recognize the GNC as the legitimate parliament of Libya and if they do not recognize its so-called National Salvation government.
The only internationally recognized Libyan parliament is the House of Representatives based in Tobruk borne out of the 2014 elections and its Abdullah Thinni government based in Al-Beida.
HRW in its report in February this year characterized the situation in Libya as a ”war on the media”. [/restrict]
