Libya seeks court injunction to halt handover of embassy properties

Lawyers representing Tripoli were last night preparing to go to the courts for a judicial review preventing the NTC’s envoys from assuming control of the state’s property. The Libyan Embassy in London is due to reopen its doors today under control of the NTC.

“We intend to go to the UK courts on Tuesday to establish that the Vienna Conventions doesn’t give them a right to hand over those premises to [a body] that is not a governing authority,” he said. “What would the British government do if we just granted the IRA access to the British Embassy in Tripoli.”
