Omar Mokhtar El-Hariri is a leading figure of the National Transitional Council of Libya and has been designated as the Minister of Military Affairs. He is in control of the Libyan People's Army and the Free Libyan Air Force.
El-Hariri was involved in the initial 1969 coup against the monarchy that brought Gaddafi into his 42 year reign over Libya. He organised a plot to overthrow Gaddafi in 1975. When the coup was uncovered, 300 men were arrested and 4 of them died during interrogation. Of the remainder 21 were sentenced to death, including El-Hariri. He was imprisoned for 15 years from 1975 to 1990 under a death sentence, with 4 1/2 years in solitary confinement. Gaddafi commuted the sentence in 1990 and El-Hariri was subsequently placed under house arrest until the 2011 revolt.
In an interview with The Globe and Mail, El-Hariri said: “They will elect a new president and he will serve for a limited time. He could be removed if he does not serve the people. And, of course, we will need a parliament, and a multiparty system.” » Read more on Wikipedia.org
