The 53 MPs in the Libyan House of Representatives have threatened to take “severe action against all ambassadors and emissaries who overstep the bounds of their diplomatic missions,” which the UK ambassador to Libya, Caroline Hollande, said would prompt the declaration of a private person in Libya due to continued disrespect for Libyan sovereignty.
A further 53 delegates accused Hollande of “flagrantly meddling in private Libyan affairs, forgetting that Libya is an independent country and not annexed to the United Kingdom or others.”
The delegation issued a statement in their names today, Friday, in which they indicated that they had followed the ambassador’s announcement on working with the United Nations Government, which “arrived in an environment of consensus.”
The delegates said in their statement: “The ambassador forgot that the consensus framework he was talking about had no legitimacy except for the adoption of the House of Representatives, whose decisions today will be rejected, and that the said consensus framework was replaced by another government led by one government through a domestically and internationally recognized political agreement. Mr. Fathi Bashaka, no other government has legitimacy.”
Referring to the head of the National Unity Government, Abdel Hamid Tabaiba, the delegation felt that such a declaration by the ambassador “reveals his bias towards a party that tries to impose a justice by force and his refusal to respect the decisions of the national law”. , and this comes within the framework of her increasing involvement in local affairs.
The delegation’s statement cited some examples of the ambassador’s work, saying, “He conducts illegal contacts and meetings with local parties for which he does not have permission, and attempts to interfere in security channels and disrupt joint work. Attempts to unify the military group (5+5) and the military establishment and international parties Another is to control Libyan money, create a group under their auspices and dispose of it in the model for oil. – food sample.
The members announced their categorical rejection of what they described as “the negative role and increased interference of the British Ambassador and some ambassadors”.
Since last March, Libya has been in a frenzy between the National Unity Government led by Abdel Hamid al-Tabaiba and the government appointed by the Libyan House of Representatives led by Fathi Bashaka.
Bashaka is demanding that he enter Tripoli and take over the duties of his government, while Tababa insists that only an elected party be given power.
