The Ministry of Health announced Thursday the cessation of overseas treatment completely, after the resignation of the Chairman and members of the High Consultative Committee for Treatment Abroad.

The president and members of the committee have submitted their resignations, in protest against the Central Bank's refusal to transfer the allocations of patients in Germany and Tunisia, according to the Ministry of Health.

"After the completion of the procedures, and the approval of both, the Audit Bureau and the Ministry of Finance, the bank refrained from implementing the procedures," the ministry added, accusing the CBL of interfering in the ministry's competence and of administrative corruption by exceeding its mandate".

It also emphasized that the treatment file has been regulated in a scientific way, based on technical statistics and electronic archiving system applied for the first time in 5 years.

The committee offered its apology to the Libyan people because of the intransigence of some entities, as described, calling on the patients undergoing treatment abroad, especially in Germany and Tunisia, to return home.
