Good governance and rule of law

The Libyan Court of Audit has just published its report for the year 2021, which calls into question the outgoing government of Abdel Hamid Dbeibah for its spending and “financial crimes.”

The report reveals that the outgoing government spent more than 86 billion dinars (18 billion euros) for its own benefit. Claiming that decisions are taken in “fundamental deviation from the rules of transparency”, the Court of Audit pointed to the purchase of 25 luxury cars for the Prime Minister at 21 million dinars and gifts worth 12 million dinars offered to guests of Abdel Hamid Dbeibah.

According to Transparency International, Libya ranks among the world’s most corrupt countries with 83 points on the public sector corruption perception index in 2021.
