Public Prosecutor Issues Internal And International Arrest Warrants Against Those Responsible For Committing Mass Graves In The City Of Tarhuna.

Tripoli, The Public Prosecutor's Office issued, on Saturday, internal and international arrest warrants against those responsible for committing mass graves in the city of Tarhuna, with their names circulated among all the arresting authorities. The Public Prosecutor mandated the Public Authority for Search and Identification of Missing Persons to undertake the process of exploration and exhumation of the bodies from the graves and transfer them to the Forensic Medicine Department of the Judicial Expertise Center at the Ministry of Justice, to undertake the autopsy of those bodies and prepare detailed reports on each body, indicating the cause of death, time and tool causing it.

This came in a statement issued by the Attorney General’s office regarding the investigations it is conducting about the mass graves that were found in Tarhuna and the accompanying procedures regarding the identification of the bodies extracted from them. It is noteworthy that the Attorney General had issued, in July 2020, an arrest warrant that included (100) people accused of involvement in the case of mass graves that were found in the city of Tarhuna and its environs after Haftar's forces withdrew from the area in June last year.
