Two employees of Libyan Embassy in Czech Republic arrrested on corruption charges

The Public Prosecution announced that it had imprisoned the financial controllers of the Libyan mission to the Czech Republic, during the period from 2011 to 2020, on charges of financial corruption.

“The Public Prosecution filed a public lawsuit against the former officials in charge of controlling the financial affairs of the Libyan mission in the Czech Republic, based on a report submitted by members of the Audit Bureau, which included results that demonstrated the misconduct by two officials, a statement published by the Public Prosecutor’s Office said.

The investigation revealed that the defendants deliberately abused their job powers, for the purpose of collecting tens of thousands of foreign exchange for themselves and others, and causing serious damage to public money, as a result of their violation of the rules governing spending, the statement added.

The statement concluded that the Public Prosecution ended up ordering the two officials to be remanded in custody pending investigation.
