The sociologist is sure that the criminal case against the politician is an attempt by the United States to interfere in the internal affairs of Libya. In particular, during the presidential elections in the country, writes the Federal News Agency.
“Haftar is considered a strong candidate and is afraid of him,” said Maxim Shugaley.
A Virginia state court has filed a case against Khalifa Haftar, who is a US citizen. He was given two weeks to answer the charges.
Maksim Shugaley also recalled that the investigation continues on the abduction, torture and attempted murder of the sociologist himself and his translator Samer Sueifan in the Mitiga prison in Libya. The defendants are 27 people, including the ex-head of the dissolved Tripolitan Government of National Accord (GNA) Fayez Sarraj and the chairman of the Supreme State Council, Khaled al-Mishri. The head of the FZNTs stressed that American journalists are not conducting an information campaign against them.
