The former Libyan ambassador to Belgium, Luxembourg and the European Union, Mourad Hamima, said that the financial statement received by the Belgian Finance Minister at the end of December 2012 showed the withdrawal of 300 million euros from Libyan frozen assets in Belgium without any knowledge on the legal procedures taken to withdraw them.

He said the value of frozen assets in Belgium until the end of 2012 amounted to 15 billion euros, while the value in Luxembourg totaled 2.5 billion dollars, adding that a report was sent by the embassy to the Libyan Ministry of Foreign Affairs proposing to form an urgent financial committee to protect these assets, but he has not received any response until the end of his mission.
