He confirmed that the director of Derna port had contacted him several years ago and informed him that there were cars coming from Tripoli and asked him to pick them up for due to fear of theft.
He added that after six years and the stabilization of the situation in the city of Derna "we prepared cars for their owners, one vehicle was priced at 145,000 dinars and despite all the pressures we kept them safe."
Al-Naji confirmed that his family handed over the vehicles in the presence of a committee "to inform everyone that the property of Derna was safe in the hands of our family."
