Libya oil and gas minister resumes work after two-month suspension

LIBYA’S oil and gas minister resumed work after a suspension for two months pending a legal investigation, the ministry said in a brief statement.

Mohamed Oun, oil and gas minister in the Government of National Unity in Tripoli, was temporarily suspended in March by the Administrative Control Agency amid an investigation it said was about “the presence of legal violations.”

The ministry said that ACA lifted the suspension on May 12 as the investigation had ended.

The ACA couldn’t immediately be reached for details on the suspension.

The oil ministry posted a picture of Oun at his desk checking a dossier, saying the minister “has resumed his duties this morning.”

The ACA oversees government performance, and its powers include challenging appointments to public positions and enhancing public accountability.
