Justice Ministry Starts Taking Over Prisons From Local Brigades
03/02/2012 21:08:00
The ceremony to take over the prison of Ain Zara from the control of the local brigade took place on February 2. It was the first of its kind.

The deputy minister of Justice Mr. Khalifa Ashour told the media that it’s the second prison to be taken over by the Justice ministry. The other prison is in Misurata.

Mr. Ashour also told the media that the ministry has sent letters all over the country asking the brigades to hand over the prisons to the national police.

He said that this is the first step to ensure that the rule of law applies to the state and to ensure that all the prisoners get a fair trial as soon as the judicial system is put in place.

The National Transitional Council and the government have been working hard to put their hands on the detention facilities around the country. As the Libyan Ministry of Interior and Ministry of Defence are gaining control, it seems only a matter of time until this issue is resolved.
