54 prisoners were freed, yesterday, from Tawesha Jail located in the epicenter of ongoing fighting in the western zone of Libya. This release of last batch of imprisoned Pakistani brings the total figure of compatriots got freed from various Libyan jails, since March 2014, to 280. This not only signifies that almost all the Pakistani prisoners in Libya are now free, but also underlines the dedication to duty shown by the Pakistan Embassy in Tripoli in accomplishing a daunting task in a record time.
All possible efforts are being undertaken to ensure the safe return/rehabilitation of the released prisoners at the earliest.
