Libya’s Deputy Minister of Culture has announced her resignation on Thursday, due to alleged corruption in the Ministry of Culture and Civil Society.
In her letter of resignation addressed to the Prime Minister Ali Zidan, Ms. Awatif al-Tushani said "administrative and financial irregularities" within the ministry made her realize would not be able to continue her job, according to Tripoli Post.
She said she had already informed the Prime Minister of irregularities in meetings with him, but no countermeasures were taken. Additionally, she said that her position on the issue meant she was subjected to personal harassment at work.
She vowed to continue her struggle against corruption in the country.
