Tripoli, 11 November 2016:
Plans have been agreed in Zintan between the Beida-based Thinni government and security officials from a number of towns in the Jebel Nafusa to establish a united police force for the area.
Mahdi Labad, the security affairs assistant of the Thinni administration, today agreed the move with Emad Trabilsi, the locally-based head of the Beida government interior ministry’s specialist police forces, and number of security heads from towns in the Jebel Nafusa and neighbouring area. The united police force is to be led by Trabulsi and his specialist police force.
Trabulsi was in Beida and Benghazi last week discussing the idea.
Labad also attended yesterday’s graduation ceremony in Zintan for 750 new policemen. They n included new officers from all over the country, “not just Zintanis” Abdullah Alrabu, a local journalist from Zintan told the Libya Herald.
The ceremony included military parade, a display of martial arts and a fly-past by the air force. Families of graduates were there as well.
It was the fourth batch of police to graduate and the second of this year, but was also the largest.
“The former batch this year had 500 graduates,” Abdullah noted.
