Human Rights Watch: Libya’s human rights situation is unstable

Human Rights Watch stressed the need for the national unity government to ensure that the December 24 elections are conducted in a free and fair manner, and to give urgent priority to the rule of law, justice, and accountability.

Human Rights Watch said: “Free and fair elections require an environment free from coercion, discrimination, or intimidation of voters, candidates and political parties, in addition to protecting freedom of expression and assembly.”

“Human Rights Watch” indicated that the human rights situation in Libya remains unstable for the continuing crisis of mass displacement, the discovery of mass graves, and the targeting of vital buildings.

Human Rights Watch believes that “the responsibility for the systematic violations that include arbitrary detention of thousands for long periods, enforced disappearances, and torture; falls on armed groups operating with impunity, and the current authorities.
