Libya's prime minister has nominated a new interior minister to fill the first spot vacated in his Cabinet, a consequence of a new law that bars officials who had served under late dictator Moammar Gadhafi from holding public office.
The chairman of Libya’s parliamentary human-rights committee has resigned and fled to London, saying militias threatened to kill him after he criticized their unchecked power and flagrant violations of the law.
"Some members of the government and congress have militias behind them," said Mr. El Amin, who fled to London in March saying that militias had threatened to kill him after he criticized their unchecked power. "How do you expect the government to disarm them?"
"We are dealing with a law that is going to cause a lot of problems ahead," Hassan El Amin, former chairman of Libya's parliamentary human rights committee, said in a phone interview from Tunis. "My worry is once this law is activated, how are we going to replace all those people who are in middle management?"
