Libyan Attorney General said in a press conference here on Wednesday that arrest warrants have been issued for former ministers accused of embezzlement and corruption.

He said some of the accused former ministers are abroad, adding that the Attorney General's office in France is following up cases of oil smuggling, and the office, with the Interpol, had issued red notice for arresting one in UAE, who has been interrogated and released afterwards by the UAE authorities.

Libya has been suffering a security and economic crisis following the uprising of 2011 that toppled former leader Muammar Gaddafi.

The country is struggling economically with the oil exports, the country's main source of income, which suffers drastically due to closing of oil ports by rival militias.

Libya is also suffering politically, with three rival governments battling for power.
