Libya’s Civil Registry Authority denies fake IDs allegations
Libya’s Civil Registry Authority (CRA) dismissed on Monday allegations of widespread fraud in the national identity card system as an attempt to foster division and “distort” the authority’s work.
A statement posted by CRA chief Mohamed Bettamer said such allegations were aimed “at disturbing the atmosphere and increasing tension and division … The authority points out that talk of rigging national numbers by millions is incorrect”.
Those with evidence of fraud should present it to the competent authorities, the statement added.
