Five Serbs Freed From Prison In Libya

Five Serbian citizens who were imprisoned in November 2011 by Libyan rebels, under suspicion that they fought on the side of Muammar Gaddafi, returned today to Serbia.

They went to Libya to work at reconstruction of demolished buildings, but they were arrested soon after their arrival in Tripoli.

They were found by the journalists of Russian “Komsomolskaya Pravda” at the Libyan capitol’s airport, in an improvised prison, and notified the Serbian embassy in Libya about it.

Until today’s liberation they were situated in prison in Zintan. During their imprisonment, they were visited once a week by representatives of Serbian embassy in Libya.
