The Embassy, according to our source, has ceased operation as from Tuesday, 9th June, 2015 until there is a permanent and stable government in Tripoli.
According to the source, there were many security officers including the agents of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), CIDs and police officers on the ground who were seen taking note on all the assets within the embassy.
