The British Ambassador to Libya, Peter Millett

The British Ambassador to Libya, Peter Millett has said that he agrees with the Presidential Council on rejecting the endorsement and acceptance of the newly formed Libyan National Guard.

Millett tweeted Monday morning, “Endorse PC statement that so-called #Libya National Guard is illegitimate & threatens to escalate violence & instability in #Tripoli.”

The Libyan National Guard was formed on Thursday and headed by Colonel, Mahmoud Al-Zagal who said the new body’s task is to secure all Libyan state institutions.

He also said that he is concerned about the kidnap of Sirte mayor, Mukhtar Al-Madani and his two companions, adding that organised crime jeopardizes Libya’s stability.

“Concerned re reports that mayor of #Sirte Mukhtar Al-Ma’adani & 2 colleagues were kidnapped. Organised crime is a threat to all #Libya-ns.” He tweeted.

Al-Madani was abducted in Tripoli with his two companions and there are no reports about who the kidnappers are and to where they took him.
