Libya’s Public Prosecutor announced yesterday that it had ordered the detention of the Chargé d’affaires of the Libyan Mission in Argentina pending investigation. The Chargé d’affaires chose to manage the mission’s bank accounts on his own.
The Public Prosecutor’s Office said it has begun conducting a forensic accounting examination of the Mission’s spending.
The Public Prosecution explained that the accused misused his position. He deliberately violated the position of Financial Controller and violated the requirements for reviewing financial operations, because of his sole management of the bank accounts.
