A group of rebels occupying several oil ports in eastern Libya have welcomed a Supreme Court ruling declaring the election of Prime Minister Ahmed Maiteeq unconstitutional, according to a statement published on Monday.

The rebels had refused to deal with Maiteeq and the government is locked in a standoff with them over reopening of ports, Reuters reported.

Libya has lost $30 billion due to 10 months of protests at oilfields and export terminals, the central bank said last week.
