In 2010 Hock founded the Independent Libya Foundation (ILF), with Zurich-based Libyan businessman Basit Igtet.

On June 14, 2011, Hock (and Igtet) met with the president of Panama, Ricardo Martinelli at the Palacio de las Garzas to lobby for official recognition of the NTC. After the meeting, Martinelli officially recognized the NTC as “the legitimate representative of the Libyan people.” Panama became the 14th nation worldwide to recognize the NTC in this manner.

On August 25, 2011, Hock and Igtet met with the President of Colombia, Juan Manuel Santos, at Casa de Nariño to lobby for official recognition of the NTC.

On November 19, 2011, Hock partook in an ILF delegation in Benghazi, Libya to present strategies for rebel re-integration.
