The Supreme Judicial Council has condemned the attack on the Minister of Justice, Halima Abdul Rahman, describing it as a "blatant attack" on the judiciary,

The council gave instructions to the competent authorities to take legal measures against the perpetrators, and to take responsibility for not repeating the assault on the judiciary.

Last Friday, the office of the Undersecretary of the Ministry of Justice, Khaled Negm, issued a statement revealing that there had been an assassination attempt on the minister, where a car intercepted the minister's convoy in the Sawani area south of Tripoli and a gunman got out of the vehicle and fired at the minister's convoy.
