Venezuelan ambassador to Libya flees Tripoli
RUN AWAY! RUN AWAY!
Venezuelan ambassador to Libya Afif Tajeldine has fled Libya and is at an unknown location in Magreb, said his son Basem Tajeldine.
The diplomat’s son said his father fled the country due to alleged political persecution launched by Libyan rebels.
Without revealing his father’s whereabouts, he said the ambassador was safe and sound and that he had been given protection, as continues representing and defending Venezuela’s view on the Libyan conflict.
Tajeldine added that the ambassadors’ house in Tripoli, seized and plundered, has been in custody by Libyan rebels since August 24, as Venezuelan president Chavez reported.
