The Public Prosecution has ordered the provisional detention of the financial controller of the Libyan Embassy in Sudan on charges of squandering public money.

The Attorney General’s Office said in a Facebook post that the accused deliberately seized sums of money that he deducted from financial grants allocated to Libyan students there, and stipulated that they give up such deduction in order to disburse the remaining value.

According to the Attorney General, the accused also deliberately deprived other students of the financial funds allocated to them as a result of their refusal to give up any sums allocated to them.
