Three foreigners who ran secret detention in Libya sentenced to 20 years in prison

The Messina court in Sicily, Italy, sentenced three foreigners to 20 years in prison for their connection to human trafficking, kidnapping, smuggling and torture of illegal immigrants in Libya.

The convicts are called Muhammad Kundi, known as “Suarez”, who has the Guinean nationality and is 27 years old, and Hamida Ahmed, an Egyptian national who is 26 years old, in addition to Mahmoud Ashoya, who is also Egyptian and at the age of 24 years old.

The three men ran a secret prison affiliated with what the court described as “criminal detention” in the city of Al-Zawiya, and supervised the operations to attract refugees ready to leave for Italy, detain them by force, and ask them for ransom in exchange for their release, according to the findings of the investigations.

The court noted that the immigrants who fell in the hands of the three accused men said that they were tortured and beaten, and saw their fellow prisoners die in front of them.
