GNA Issues Travel Ban on CBL Governor


The Interior Minister of the Government of National Accord (GNA), Fathi Bashagha, issued a travel ban for the Governor of the Central Bank of Libya (CBL), Sadiq Al-Kabeer.

Al-Kabeer submitted a complaint to the Attorney General, saying the decision was “illegal and harms the state’s legislative institutions.”

“When I was going to travel on an official mission on Thursday, I was shocked that my name was included in the travel ban list. This was on the order of the Interior Minister, Fathi Bashagha,” Al-Kabeer said in his complaint.

“This decision is an obstruction to the extraordinary efforts made by the bank to adjust the exchange rate of the Libyan dinar, and unify the CBL’s Board of Directors,” Al-Kabeer added.

The governor called on the Attorney General to “take the powers vested in the law regarding this matter.”
