The Presidential Council has demanded a clarification from Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibah on the extradition of Libyan Abu Ajila Al-Marimi to the US after the latter appeared before an American judiciary on Tuesday.

The PC referred a complaint submitted by the family Al-Marimi, to the Attorney General and ordered the necessary measures to be put in place.

It also called on the Ministry of Justice, in coordination with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, to appoint a defence committee for the Al-Marimi, and to follow up on the matter with the American authorities.
