On Monday, the Minister of Interior for Libya's Government of National Accord (GNA), Fathi Bashagha, stressed that the government is facing a "difficult phase that has not yet ended," noting the importance of "fighting corruption and setting sound rules for a democratic state," and the ministry's readiness to contract with "financial auditing firms."

Bashagha met with a number of department head, security services directors and public administrations officials at the Corinthia Hotel in Tripoli, "stressing the need to fight corruption, combat money laundering and organized crime."

He also indicated that a memorandum of understanding will be signed between the ministry and the Central Bank of Libya on money laundering and organized crime.

He revealed that he would issue decisions to "suspend all financial and administrative procedures for any security directorate or security apparatus that does not obey the orders of the Ministry of Interior, with the necessity to adhere to regulations and laws."
