The head of Youth of Awaqir Tribe Movement in east Libya, Al-Jarih Al-Aqwri, has confirmed the release of the manager of Al-Rahila Oil Services Company, Faraj Al-Abdali, on Tuesday.

Al-Aqwri revealed that Al-Abdali was detained some days ago by the personal secretary of Khalifa Haftar, Oan Furjani, for his refusal to pay him LYD 60 million from the company’s funds.

Al-Abdali was detained outside the company’s HQs in Benghazi by gunmen from so-called Battalion 106, led by Khalid Khalifa Haftar.
