Libya: Al-Mahmoudi Trial Adjourned

The trial of former Libyan Prime Minister Al-Baghdadi Ali Al-Mahmoudi resumed Monday (December 10th) in Tripoli. It was later adjourned to January 14th.

Al-Mahmoudi and his co-defendants Adel Terfas and al-Mabrouk Zahmoul Zahmoul allegedly funnelled 19 million euros to private accounts in Tunisia, with the money used for logistical support to former regime forces as they sought to crush last year's revolt.

The trial of former Parliament speaker Mohamed al-Zwai and former foreign minister Abdul Ati al-Obeidi was held simultaneously at the Tripoli Appeal Court. They stand accused of financial corruption.

Their case was adjourned until January 7th.
