News In Brief:

The interim government in east Libya has announced the lifting of the legal safeguards imposed on the property of Libyans involved with the late Muammer Gaddafi since 2012, including his wife and children.

The Minister of Justice in the government which is based in Bayda, Munir Aser, said that the decision to lift the safeguards includes the wife and children of Gaddafi, adding that the government issued the decision after a convincing letter was received indicating that the law is unjust and unconstitutional.

In May 2012, the National Transitional Council (NTC) passed a law banning some 300 people from access to their property, including Gaddafi's wife, sons and any prominent figures of the old regime, placing them in the custody of the public guard.
