The Attorney General’s Office issued Wednesday an arrest warrant for the President of Alwatan Party Hakim Belhaj and former self-proclaimed chief of Petroleum Facilities Guard Ibrahim Jadhran, in addition to 4 other Libyans on charges of “attacking oil ports and Tamanhint airbase in southern Libya.”

The arrest warrant also included 31 Sudanese and Chadian rebels on charges of abduction and armed robberies in the southern region.

Jadhran has been listed in the UNSC sanctions list  since September 2018.

Meanwhile, Belhaj has denied the charges of the Attorney General saying in a media statement "it’s a plot by those in control of security in Tripoli to distance me from the political scene."

He declared that he had opposed the attacks on oil ports, confirming that he has assigned a lawyer to respond to the charges.
