NTC to hunt for Libya's missing billions

New transparency organisation set up to fight corruption and arrest those who stole from the country.

    In Muammar Gaddafi's Libya corruption was common, with the former leader and his family accused of being at the centre of it. 

    Now that Gaddafi is removed from power, the National Transitional Council (NTC) has set up a new transparency organisation to hunt for the country's missing billions and arrest those who stole it.
