Tripoli, 19 May 2016:
Libya’s highly-respected ambassador to the EU, Farida Allaghi, has resigned, saying that she could no longer . . .[restrict]keep silent about the political situation on the country. Critical of the international community’s role in the country, and particular that of the EU, she is reported to have said that a number of Brussels and international officials bore some responsibility for the crisis in Libya.
She had wanted to resign before but refrained because she was aware she was a role model for Libyan women.
A tough, human rights activist, Allaghi was appointed as Libya’s representative to Brussels by prime minister Abdullah Al-Thinni almost exactly a year ago, and has been loyal to him. In 2014, he proposed making her his foreign minister. [/restrict]
