Libyan National Popular Movement condemns attempt to assassinate Black aide to Qaddafi Dr. Bashir Saleh Bashir

by Naser Said

Dr. Bashir Saleh Bashir, according to Wikipedia, “was head of the Libyan African Portfolio, a sovereign wealth fund that invested Libya’s oil wealth mostly in sub-Saharan Africa, and served as an intermediary between Libya, Africa and France. Bashir was captured after the Battle of Tripoli (during the NATO invasion of Libya) but later escaped.”

The Executive Committee of the Libyan National Popular Movement is following the circumstances and context of the cowardly assassination attempt of the fighter Dr. Bashir Saleh Bashir, member of the Executive Committee of the Movement, and wishes to inform the public of the following:


The medical condition of Dr. Bashir is still critical and has not passed the stage of danger and we all pray to Allah to heal him quickly.


We have confirmed that the cowardly assassination attempt is not for ordinary criminal reasons, but rather a terrorist assassination for non-criminal motives.


We call upon the authorities of the South African government to expedite their investigation and to identify the perpetrators and those behind them and bring them to justice.

We call upon the national forces in Libya and all African national organizations to stand in solidarity with Haj Bashir Saleh and his family in these difficult circumstances, and to hold the local government authorities responsible for their security and personal protection.

The Movement renews its pledge to the masses of the Libyan people to continue the struggle for the restoration of the homeland. We further confirm that targeting our leaders with cowardly assassinations and intimidation will not deter us from carrying out our duty to the homeland.

Freedom for the homeland and sovereignty for the people.
