The International Criminal Court's Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda has started investigating crimes committed by forces under Khalifa Haftar's command in Libya, the spokesman for Libyan Foreign Ministry Mohammed Al-Giblawi said Saturday.
Al-Giblawi told Anadolu Agency that the Libyan Foreign Ministry had delivered evidence to the ICC proving Haftar's forces strikes on illegal immigrants' detention center in Tajoura and strikes in Murzuq in southern Libya.
He also said that the international community is split regarding Libya, which has given a chance to some parties to support Haftar and hinder abiding resolutions at the Security Council, adding that there is no clear condemnation of Haftar's actions at the Security Council due to some countries' intervention, especially France.
"France knows that the Government of National Accord is a major member of the international coalition to combat terrorism led by the US and that it is in direct coordination with Washington to eliminate terrorists in Libya. We are ready to cooperate with the French investigation committee of France's Parliament to prove their country's involvement in supporting Haftar." Al-Giblawi remarked.
He called on the eastern Libyan politicians and academics to present figures who can negotiate for the rights of east Libya after the Head of the Presidential Council Fayez Al-Sirraj had put out his vision for the political process after the war. source
