Libya's Central Bank: State employees' January and February salaries in payment
The Central Bank of Libya (CBL) has said that salaries of state employees for January and February are now being paid while March salaries are in the process.
In a letter by the governor of the CBL Al-Siddiq Al-Kabir to the Head of the Presidential Council Fayez Al-Sarraj on Tuesday, the governor said they had approved letters of credit for the medical supply apparatus as well as the fuel imports' orders.
"The CBL awaits Presidential Council's orders of increasing fees on foreign currency purchase transactions in order to reopen the transactions, as per the previous meetings between CBL and Presidential Council officials." Al-Kabir said.
He said there is no need to use Coronavirus preventive measures as an excuse for low performance by state sovereign institutions, saying all institutions should unify efforts at this critical time.
Meanwhile, Al-Sarraj called on Monday on Al-Kabir to release the salaries of state employees for January, February and March and to open the letters of credit system for foods and health materials' imports.
The Presidential Council called on the CBL to urgently implement the 2020 financial arrangements as approved earlier last month, amid other procedures that help the country implement its emergency plan amid the spread of the Coronavirus pandemic.
