Congress Vote Themselves $36k Car Loans

Libya Herald reports that members of Libya's General National Congress have voted themselves a loan of 45,000 dinars ($36,000) for the purpose of buying cars.

Resolution No. 46 will take effect from 1 November.

The loan repayments will be deducted directly from members’ monthly allowances -- currently 10,500 dinars -- which are intended to cover housing, staffing and other expenses.

The 45,000 dinar loan is considerably less than previously rumoured; in August it was falsely claimed that members had voted themselves four cars, one for themselves, two for security and the fourth for other purposes.
