Ex-Libyan PM Mahmoudi says 'he is innocent'
Tripoli, July 4 (ANI): Former Libyan prime minister Al-Baghdadi al-Mahmoudi, who was recently extradited from Tunisia to face justice in his home country, has said he is innocent.
"I am not guilty, not guilty, not guilty. I am ready to be tried by the Libyan people. I am sure of myself and of my innocence," Mahmoudi said.
According to New24, he also denied reports that he was tortured upon his arrival in Libya.
"I am in front of you and in good health. There was no assault against me," Mahmoudi said.
"Reports that I was tortured, all of that was lies," he added.
Mahmoudi, who served as Muammar Gaddafi's prime minister from March 2006, till he fled to Tunisia in August 2011, said he was being questioned by judicial authorities almost daily and that his family would soon appoint a lawyer to defend him. (ANI)
