Mustafa Abdul Jalil

Mustafa Abdul Jalil or Abdul-Jalil Abdel-Jalil or Abdeljalil; and frequently but erroneously as Abud Al Jeleil) (born 1952) is a Libyan politician. He was the Minister of Justice (unofficially, the Secretary of the General People's Committee) under Colonel Muammar al-Gaddafi. He has been noted in news media for his stance against various human rights violations in that country. During the 2011 Libyan protests, Abdul Jalil has been identified as the Chairman of the National Transitional Council based in Benghazi, which controls much of the country in opposition to Gaddafi in Tripoli, although this position is contested by others in the uprising due to his past connections to Gaddafi's regime.
