Libya’s former Prime Minister Ali Zeidan has been freed, according to a close family member who spoke to the Libya Herald yesterday. Details of his release have not yet been disclosed.
According to the Zeidan’s family he is still in Tripoli and they have been able to speak to him via telephone.
Zeidan was abducted nine days ago from the Victoria hotel in Tripoli by members of Haitham Tajouri’s forces and prevented from speaking to anyone, including his family, until his release.
Presidency Council head Fayez Al-Sarraj told a delegation from the south of the country yesterday that he had been working to free Zeidan.
