LIBYAN MILITIA LEADER KHALIFA HAFTAR SUSPECTED OF TRYING TO TO RAISE FUNDS THROUGH OIL DEALS

On 3 June, the Wall Street Journal reported that the UN and the official Libyan government are probing a Dubai-based ship charterer for possibly helping Haftar to market fuel in the Mediterranean.  It says that the US has also begun investigating a trip Haftar may have made to Venezuela.  The report says that the probes are part of a wider international campaign aimed at halting Haftar’s oil sales, which he is hoping to turn into a key source of funding for his 14-month insurgent assault on Libya’s capital city of Tripoli.
