Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibah on Tuesday dismissed Libya's Ambassador to Belgium, Amal Al-Jarari after she was heard in an alleged leaked audio recording planning to fake government bills for self-interest.
The PM media office said the procedures to suspend Al-Jarari have been referred to the Presidential Council as per the legislation in force.
As a result, the PM has issued a decision to reinstate Abu Bakr Al-Salihin, the person responsible for the duties of the temporary financial attaché at the Libyan Embassy in Belgium, to his previous position.
For his part, the Public Prosecutor ordered the pretrial detention of Ambassador Al-Jarari on charges of mismanagement and financial misuse.
Al-Jarari faces charges of deliberately attempting to gain illegal benefits by seizing state funds and causing harm to the public interest.
The charges stem from a leaked audio recording purportedly of Al-Jarari, where she requests her secretary's assistance to fabricate a massive bill for a supposed cancer patient, enabling her to access government funds in a manner that avoids legal prosecution.
