Tripoli- The Transparency Verification Committee (TVC) released on Tuesday its long awaited report on the transparency affidavits presented by Libyan public officials and senior personalities in the private sector. The affidavits included information related to income and property.

The TVC said in its report that only 157 cases have been found to be with improper practices out of 4287 cases. According to TVC, those who presented their affidavits were 4287 people divided into four groups:

Those selected by the General People's Congress, 96 people; holders of leadership positions including military officers, security apparatuses and similar organizations, 249; Secretaries of GPCs and CEOs of various institutes and companies, 2719 people; and those who were made available to the TVC by the state, 1223 people.

The affidavits with irregularities include 10 people from the first group, 37 people from the second group, 85 from the third group and 25 people form the fourth group.

However, the TVC stressed that that many of those who presented their affidavits did not mentioned all the required data and were not truthful.

It also said that all those who did not come out clean did exploit their official positions to get bank loans and circumvent the law and administrative regulations in order to take control of public money.

The reason that the number of those who broke the law is rather small, 157, comparing to the total of over four thousands is due to the untruthfulness of those who submitted the affidavits.
