Pro-Haftar police chief orders arrest of Al-Thanni interior ministry spokesperson
Colonel Moamin Bozohra, chief of Al-Bayda Security Department, has issued an arrest warrant against the spokesperson of Al-Thanni interior ministry Tareq Al-Kharraz for criticizing him.
Renegade General Khalifa Haftar appointed Colonel Bozohra as the General Commander of Police Forces last week. Shortly, Bozohra and other security chiefs in eastern Libya disowned Al-Thanni government saying orders will only be taken from "the General Commander of the Army."
Al-Kharraz criticized Bozohra's appointment as illegitimate, telling media that appointment of a general commander for police is the responsibility of the parliament.
The General Commander of Police post was invented by rogue General Haftar to put all security services under his command in preparations for his military council.
