28 July 2014 – Due to the increasing violence and lawlessness in Tripoli, all non-core staff of the Philippine Embassy there are being relocated to Tunisia. Staff dependents were repatriated last week.
Male officers and staff augmented by the Rapid Response Teams remain in Tripoli to oversee OFW repatriation under Alert Level 4 which calls for mandatory evacuation.
Meanwhile, the Philippine Embassy in Tripoli continues to strongly urge Filipinos to enlist for evacuation before all routes and options become extremely difficult. END
