Parliamentary questions
26 March 2014
E-003736-14
Question for written answer
to the Commission (Vice-President/High Representative)
Rule 117
Sir Graham Watson (ALDE)

 Subject:  VP/HR — Tawergha
 Answer(s) 

Tawergha in Libya was the scene of a battle during the country’s civil war in 2011. By the end of 2011 the city had been virtually emptied of its inhabitants. However, reports from NGOs such as Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International highlight that Tawerghans remain refugees and are unable to return to their homes due to intimidation and violence by militias.

Is the High Representative aware of this situation? What steps are being taken by the EU to encourage reconciliation and the return of the Tawerghan population to their homes?
