The Minister of Oil and Gas in the Government of National Unity, Mohammed Aoun, has accused the National Oil Corporation (NOC) of committing financial violations.

Aoun considered that the NOC’s approval of Sirte Oil and Gas Company’s request to deposit $10 million with the Mediterranean Company in Dubai is a clear violation and a misuse of public funds. 

He submitted a complaint to the head of the Administrative Control Authority, Abdullah Qadiriou, asking him to intervene urgently, in order to preserve public money.

Last Saturday, Oil and Gas Minister Mohamed Aoun accused some international oil companies operating in Libya of exploiting the lax security situation.
