Military court to question Abdel Jalil over general's killing
A military court ordered prosecutors Wednesday to interrogate Mustafa Abdel Jalil, former chairman of Libya's National Transitional Council (NTC), over the 2011 killing of a rebel commander, dpa reported.
The court in the port city of Benghazi ordered that Abdel Jalil be questioned over the killing of rebel general Abdel Fatah Younes.
Younes, who led the 2011 uprising that ousted former Libyan leader Moammar Gaddafi's regime, was killed in July 2011 by gunmen after being recalled from the front line for questioning by the NTC.
Abdel Jalil, 60, was justice minister under Gaddafi but defected a month after the Libyan uprising started in January 2011. The NTC acted as a transitional government during and after the 2011 Libyan uprising, in which rebel forces aligned with the NTC to overthrew Gaddafi.
Abdel Jalil governed Libya for 10 months after the end of the war led the country to general elections, which led to the establishment of a National Congress on July 7. The former chairman handed over power to the newly elected assembly on August 8. dpa wh fff Author: Weedah Hamzah
