A tribal committee in Libya called on the government of Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibeh to release political detainees who have already received judicial release notices.

The committee, speaking on behalf of the Warfalla, Qadhadhfa, Magarha, and Awlad Suleiman tribes, called on the Libyan Government of National Unity (GNU) to fulfil its obligations regarding the reconciliation law.

In a statement published by local media, the committee urged the executive and judicial authorities in the country to expedite the release of the detainees before the end of Ramadan, in the context of strengthening the dialogue on national reconciliation.

The new executive authority is responsible for unifying state institutions and overseeing the transitional phase until holding legislative and presidential elections in December.
