Libya|Open letter to the Libyan state: support a mechanism to determine individual accountability for violations in Libya

In African Commission for Human and Peoples' Rights, Arab Countries, International Advocacy Program, Media Unite, Statements and Reports by CIHRS

We urge Libya to accept through the HRC an international investigative mechanism for Libya, to deter further horrific human rights violations of hundreds of thousands of Libyans as well as migrants and refugees and stop ongoing human rights abuses by armed groups and militias. Such mechanism would need the sufficient resources to be able to determine the facts and circumstances of violations and abuses across Libya and identify individual perpetrators and chain of command.
