Oil Minister Aoun suspends NOC Chairman Sanalla


Libya’s Oil Minister, Mohamed Aoun, has fired the Chairman of the state oil company NOC.

An interim Manager has been named until the board of Directors of the company meets to elect a new chairman, a decree from the ministry said.

This the second time in as many months that the oil minister has taken a decision against the chairman Mustafa Sanallah.

The minister had suspended Mr Sanallah in September, accusing him of insubordination over his travels abroad without permission from the ministry.

He was later reinstated by Prime Minister Abdel Hamid Dbeiba who overturned the suspension.
