Press Release


 The Egyptian Alliance for Human Rights and Development today, May 9, 2021, condemned the storming of the Corinthian Hotel by armed elements, and Mohammed Al-Manfy, president of the Presidential Council of the Libyan Government of National Unity, left the hotel which was surrounded by militants,

It is noteworthy that the siege of the headquarters of the Presidential Council came to demand the dismissal of Foreign Minister Najla al-Manoush, which escalated the propaganda campaign against her after she demanded an end to Turkey’s military presence and the withdrawal of mercenaries loyal to it from Libyan territory, and that the militias also demanded the dismissal of General Hussein al-Ayyeb from the head of the General Intelligence Service, one day after his appointment, and the Alliance confirms that the militias want to keep Imad Trabelsi, who was appointed by Fayez Al-Sarraj, former head of the Government of Reconciliation as head of the Libyan intelligence service.

The Alliance warns of a sharp deterioration in Tripoli in a manner that threatens to wipe out the country’s government of national unity.

The Egyptian Alliance for Human Rights is demanding the speedy expulsion of armed and fragmented militias outside Libyan territory to make way for the reconstruction of Libyan state institutions, to complete the political transition of the country and to move towards building a sound democratic system based on human rights and citizenship.
