Libyan Attorney General Ibrahim Anis Beshia of the Tripoli-based government on Sunday refuted reports that he had been kidnapped while exiting the Tripoli court complex on Saturday.
"I was not kidnapped," Beshia told.
Noureddine Karkoub, the head of Beshia's office, for his part, said that the attorney general is fine and that he is currently at his office.
The denial came one day after sources with Libya's High Court told Anadolu Agency that a group of armed men took the attorney general to an unknown location immediately after he finished his work at the complex.
Since then, the country's stark political divisions have yielded two rival seats of government, each with its own institutions and military capacities.
The two assemblies support two rival governments respectively headquartered in the two cities.Güncelleme Tarihi: 08 Mart 2015, 16:44
