According to sources from the media, the former Libyan Prime Minister, Ali Zeidan, has been released from his detention in Tripoli.

Zeidan was arrested from his hotel in Dahra in Tripoli on August 14 by security forces allied to the Presidential Council, citing an arrest warrant by the Tripoli Attorney General’s Office, which was denied by Zeidan relatives.

“Zeidan is out and safe.” One close source to his son wrote on her Facebook page on about an hour ago.

Zeidan has been away from Libya – in Germany as he has dual citizenship – for three years, he returned and met with many Libyan parties in different cities before he came to Tripoli.
