Since that time, Libya enacted numerous laws and regulations intended to improve the Libyan business climate and increase its attractiveness to foreign investment.

Flag of Libya under Gaddafis tenure Coat of Arms of Libya under Gaddafis tenure Prior to the revolution, Libya’s political system was in theory based on the political philosophy in Gaddafi’s Green Book, which combined socialist and Islamic theories and rejected parliamentary democracy and political parties. In reality, Gaddafi exercised near total control over major government decisions. For the first seven years following the revolution, Colonel Gaddafi and 12 fellow army officers, the Revolutionary Command Council, began a complete overhaul of Libya’s political system, society and economy.
In , he announced the start of a “cultural revolution” in schools, businesses, industries, and public institutions to oversee administration of those organizations in the public interest. The GPC, built on the socilaist model, was the legislative forum that interacted with the General People’s Committee, whose members were secretaries of Libyan ministries. It served as the intermediary between the masses and the leadership and was composed of the secretariats of some local “basic popular congresses.
These cabinet secretaries were responsible for the routine operation of their ministries, but Gaddafi exercised real authority directly or through manipulation of the peoples and revolutionary committees.
As fighting escalates in Libya, Al Jazeera takes a closer look at the major armed groups. Haftar launched his operation on May 16, targeting Islamist militias in the eastern city of Benghazi and storming the General National Congress in the capital, Tripoli, in fighting that has left at least 72 dead.
Haftar accuses Congress of allowing “terrorists” to flourish in Libya and has vowed to “wipe them out”, gaining support from much of the regular armed forces and nationalist militias. Other militias have lined up to oppose him, insisting his attacks amount to a “coup”. Neighbouring countries are closing their borders and the US is readying its forces for a possible evacuation of its embassy, while diplomats and the UN have urged all sides to engage in peaceful dialogue.
The fighting has seen an array of forces lining up on opposing sides, underlining the splintered divisions of Libya three years after its “Arab Spring” uprising.
Fighters which included Libyan exiles and British-Libyan residents have described how MI5 operated an open door policy for those willing to travel to North Africa to topple the dictator. It comes as Home Secretary Amber Rudd admitted Salman Abedi, who killed 22 and injured at least people when he blew himself up at Manchester Arena, was known to counter-terror authorities.
Those who travelled to Libya to fight alongside Islamic rebel groups have described how, even though they were subject to counter-terror orders banning them from leaving their homes because they posed a security threat, they were allowed to travel to the hostile warzone. When they returned to the UK, having spent months alongside groups thought by British intelligence to have links with Al-Qaeda, rebels were said to have been allowed back into the country without hesitation.
Libyan officials have backed up the claims, saying the British government were ‘fully aware’ of young men being sent to fight, turning the North African country into an ‘exporter of terror’. Salman Abedi may have been part of a larger cell that included Mohamed Abrini, the ‘Man in the Hat’, with connections to the mass murders in Paris and Brussels. His father Ramadan right was arrested in Tripoli yesterday evening Lounging on the beach in Libya with friends and hanging out with his mates in Manchester, this is Salman Abedi circled as a teenage boy before he became a suicide bomber.
There is a no suggestion any of the friends he is pictured with have been involved in any wrong doing Abedi’s younger brother Hashem pictured was arrested in Tripoli, Libya, on suspicion of having links to the ISIS, that claimed responsibility for the atrocity Abedi’s father Ramadan and younger brother Hashem were in custody in Libya last night after being arrested by counter-terror police a day after elder brother Ismail, 23, was detained in Manchester.
Hashem was accused of having known about his brother’s murderous plans for more than a month, while it emerged his father had been a revolutionary fighter against Gaddafi who publicly voiced support for an Al Qaeda-linked group in Syria. In the wake of Monday night’s atrocity, former rebel fighters have talked of how easily they were able to slip free from their travel bans and leap into battle.
Sources, some of whom met Abedi and described him as a hothead, told the Middle Eastern Eye claim these trips were facilitated by the British government, something the Home Office said it could not comment on when contacted by MailOnline. Another British fighter told how he was stopped entering the UK having visited Libya in , but when he told them the name of the MI5 officer he had talked to about fighting in the war-torn country, he was allowed to board the plane and said the security services had ‘sorted it’.
The bulk of the fighters, described to be in their late teens or early 20s, flew to Tunisia before crossing the border while others went via Malta.
Mail Forecast Bullets Libya’s internationally recognized government, the Government of National Accord, will continue to decline as it nears the end of its first year in power. Despite their proximity in western Libya and their enduring rivalry, Field Marshal Khalifa Hifter’s Libyan National Army and militias from the city of Misrata may opt to negotiate rather than resume fighting. Prospective negotiations to form a government in Libya will need to accommodate the ambitions of both the Misratans and Hifter.
Libya is a country divided. A year ago, representatives from its rival governments — the nationally recognized House of Representatives, based in Tobruk, and the General National Congress GNC in Tripoli — signed a deal to unite as a single government. Instead of two rival governments, Libya now has three, and its internationally recognized leadership, the Government of National Accord, is losing ground.

May 6, LD — The reasoning behind recent US-Israeli attacks on Syria has been undermined further as the UN reveals Western-backed terrorists, not the Syrian government, deployed sarin gas during the 2 year conflict. The United Nations independent commission of inquiry on Syria has not yet seen evidence of government forces having used chemical weapons, which are banned under international law, said commission member Carla Del Ponte.
Why the Small Amounts of Sarin Cited by Washington, Riyadh, and Tel Aviv are a Set Up The small amounts of sarin gas reportedly used would defy any tactical or strategic sense had they been deployed by the Syrian government to tip the balance in the destructive 2-year conflict. Several engagements are studied in detail, revealing large amounts of chemical agents deployed mainly to create areas of denial, not mass casualties.

Libyan Lines Leave a comment The Tripoli-based Audit Bureau held a meeting in the capital today with various institutions including the Central Bank of Libya CBL in order to attempt to solve the huge financial crises that the country finds itself in. It is clear that the CBL is not in favour of an earlier policy option floated by the Administrative Control Authority of pumping LD 10 bn of newly printed banknotes into the economy in the hope of solving the cash crises at banks.
The pumping of cash into the economy was seen by critics as inflationary and counter-productive. The meeting is long overdue in view of the cash crises in Libyan banks, the collapse in the value of the Libyan dinar against foreign currencies as well as the rise in prices. Today, one Tripoli-based black market money exchanger reported to Libya Herald that the dollar reached a record LD 4.
The move on the money traders follows the questionable populist narrative that it is the black market traders who are controlling the flow of foreign currency in order to force exchange prices upwards. In an effort to fight criticism and answer back public criticism, the CBL introduced numerous conditions which many business leaders saw as prohibitive.
The CBL is caught between a rock and hard place in attempting to be seen to be fighting foreign currency corruption at Libyan banks, in managing its fast diminishing foreign currency reserves but at the same time satisfying foreign currency demand so as not to cause the black market exchange rate to overheat. The CBL finds it politically unpalatable to be associated with a dinar devaluation. In ordinary political circumstances, the CBL would probably be persuaded by its sovereign parliament, to which it is accountable, to devalue the Libyan dinar.
But in the legitimacy and political vacuum that Libya finds itself in, the CBL seems reluctant to take the hard decision on its own. But critics today said that the decision not to devalue is very short term-ist. It will only encourage the black market and subject the banks to pressure and coercion as those with access clamor to get LCs at the official exchange rate.
The most equitable across-the-board solution is to devalue the Libyan dinar and wipe out the black market by making foreign currency available to whosoever demands.

African refugees sold at ‘regular public slave auctions’ in Libya “Does anybody need a digger? This is a digger, a big strong man, he’ll dig,” the auctioneer, who is dressed in camouflage gear, is heard saying. After the footage emerged, protests erupted in Paris and other cities, while Libyans expressed solidarity with the victims with the hashtag LibyansAgainstSlavery.
The Libyan government launched an investigation into the slave auctions, but said the international community needed to provide more support if it was going to tackle the problem.

January 12, On Monday May 22nd , Salman Abedi walked into the foyer at the Manchester Arena and detonated an explosive suicide device. The attack claimed 22 lives including seven children. We have a UN Terror List to thank for that. And with reports now emerging that any remaining suspects will be tried in Libya and not Britain it looks certain that the victims will be denied any shot at justice.
