Qaddafi supporters behind Othman killing says Sawan
[Libya Herald] The liquidation of Misrata council member Mohamed Ben Othman last Saturday was carried out by Qadaffy supporters intent on destablising the entire country, according to the leader of the Justice and Construction (J&C), party Mohammed Sawan.

Ben Othman was a member of the J&C.

Speaking in a presser yesterday evening, Tuesday, at the party's headquarters in Tripoli
...a confusing city, one end of which is located in Lebanon and the other end of which is the capital of Libya. Its chief distinction is being mentioned in the Marine Hymn...
, Sawan claimed that Othman had received several threatening letters from Qadaffy regime supporters. These "traitors", he said, were being manipulated and financed from abroad. He suggested that some were in Misrata itself. He spoke of elements of the former regime remaining "in some Libyan cities that were besieged by the former regime during the 17 February Revolution".

The two main ones were Misrata and Zawia.

Sawan also accused those behind the liquidation of employing other means to destabilise the country such as spreading of rumours and sewing division among Libyans.

He added that J&C had presented a draft national reconciliation charter, to involve all responsible and patriotic political organizations and leading national figures in order to get the country out of its current political problems.

He said that the objective was stability, security and peace through national partnership. It also aimed at promoting a spirit of civil solidarity and national identity.
