The French magazine Jeune Afrique revealed that negotiations are ongoing for the release of 73-year-old Abdullah Al-Senussi, the last prominent figure from Muammar Gaddafi's regime.

In a report on Wednesday, the magazine said that negotiations were underway with elders from the Magarha tribe in the Fezzan region, from which the former intelligence cheif hails.

The report revealed that Al-Senussi's possible release to Benghazi or abroad, may hinge on representatives of the Magarha expressing their support for Government of National Unity Prime Minister Abdulhamid Dabaiba, according to a source.

Not Just Abdullah Al-Senussi

Other negotiations are also underway to reach an agreement that would allow the release of two other loyal Gaddafi aides who were present with him on the day he was killed in 2011.

They are the former head of internal security, Mansour Dhao, who is currently detained in Misrata and the main leader of the Revolutionary Committees and former minister Ahmed Ibrahim.

The two had been sentenced to death, like Al-Senussi, and are familiar with the secrets of the Gaddafi era, which lasted more than forty years.
