The International Police Organisation (Interpol) has issued a red alert against five Libyans for cases of corruption and fraud, a source of the Office of the Attorney General confirmed.

The names on the Red List include former deputy executive director of the LIA, Mustafa Muhammad Zarti, Mohammed Shukri Ghanem -son of the former Prime Minister at the time of Gadhafi Shukri Ghanem, Ismail Boudhahir, and Mercedes agent in Libya Mohamed Aqeel.

The group is accused of profiting from their senior posts and obtaining illegal material benefits through profit margins and return for management fees in the LIA.

“These red notices came at the request of the Libyan Attorney General, Al-Siddiq Al-Sour, the source told the Libya Al-Ahrar TV channel.

It may be worth noting that investigations concerning the Libyan assets managed by the Palladien company established that the funds were being transferred directly through the LIA to companies belonging to the five defendants without disclosing their value.
