Libyan military prosecutor issues arrest warrant of Haftar and three military leaders
[Libya Observer] The Libyan military prosecutor of the Defense Ministry has ordered the arrest of four military leaderships from Khalifa Haftar
...Self-proclaimed Field Marshal, served in the Libyan army under Muammar Qadaffy, and took part in the coup that brought Qadaffy to power in 1969. He became a prisoner of war in Chad in 1987. While held prisoner, he and his fellow officers formed a group hoping to overthrow Qadaffy, so it's kind of hard to describe him as a Qadaffy holdover. He was released around 1990 in a deal with the United States government and spent nearly two decades in the United States, gaining US citizenship. In 1993, while living in the United States, he was convicted in absentia of crimes against the Jamahiriya and sentenced to death. Haftar held a senior position in the anti-Qadaffy forces in the 2011 Libyan Civil War. In 2014 he was commander of the Libyan Army when the General National Congress (GNC) refused to give up power in accordance with its term of office. Haftar launched a campaign against the GNC and its Islamic fundamentalist allies. His campaign allowed elections to take place to replace the GNC, but then developed into a civil war. Guess you can't win them all...

The arrest warrant is after Haftar, the commander of judiciary and control authority of Haftar's forces Oun al-Furjani, Chief of Staff of Haftar's forces appointed by Tobruk-based House of Representatives, Abdelrazik al-Nathori, and al-Sharif al-Buzaidi.

"Ongoing investigations are following up on a lawsuit by Hussam Abuajila Anbais for the abduction and killing of Abuajila Anbais, Muhannad Anbais, Hamza Barbash, and the torture and kidnap of Hussam himself in Esbea district in southern Tripoli

on September 24 by Russian gang fighting for Haftar's forces." The arrest warrant says.

The military prosecutor ordered immediate apprehension of the four persons and sending them directly to his office, tasking security personnel of investigating the Russian gang's presence and whereabouts as well as other details to take the needed legal measures against them.

The only survivor of the Russian massacre of Wagner Group mercenaries in Esbea district, Hussam Anbais, filed a lawsuit against Haftar and accused him of bringing Russian mercenaries, kidnapping and killing his father, brother and brother-in-law.
