The Special Deterrence Force has arrested a gang that had kidnapped the Director of the Compliance Department at the Jumhouria Bank and threatened to kill him if he did not leave his position in less than 10 days.

The same gang threatened the Director of the Audit Department at the Jumhouria Bank and some employees with text messages from unknown numbers, as well as the head of the Financial Information Unit of the Central Bank of Libya.

The Deterrence Force said that the phenomenon of the kidnapping of officials and employees needs serious actions against those who take advantage of their dependence on security bodies that are not subject to follow-up.
