Haftar war crimes trial to resume in Virginia in June
One of the war crimes trials facing General Khalifa Haftar in the United States has resumed and a new hearing has been set for 16 June.
After being stalled for several months, one of the "war crimes" trials against Khalifa Haftar has resumed. On 11 March, judges decided to continue proceedings, in which Haftar faces Canadian-Libyan plaintiff Ali Abdallah Hamza. The legal case has been suspended since 4 Nov last year.
The plaintiffs are pushing for the resumption of legal proceedings that were interrupted due to the elections that were to take place on 24 December last year. Khalifa Haftar was a candidate at the last elections, for which no new date has yet been announced.
The Military Investment Authority, which is the main financial body behind the regime of General Khalifa Haftar in eastern Libya, is run by figures drawn from Libyan National Army. It has charge of infrastructure projects and troop supplies but is also involved in smuggling.
