Situation of migrants in Libya

  Jaroslav Paška, on behalf of the EFD Group. (SK) Mr President, Libya has recently gone through a very complex period when, following a difficult civil war, even with material assistance from Europe, there has been a change in the nature of the state administration.

It is therefore natural that new, freshly created administrative institutions do not yet have a purpose-built comprehensive state administrative system. On the other hand, however, they should be capable of resolving the country’s most acute problems. In recent times, the situation of foreigners in integrated establishments in Kufra, Benghazi and Tripoli has become particularly critical. The extreme prison conditions to which even women and children are exposed with frequent cases of sexual violence give rise to justifiable concern about the inactivity of Libyan state bodies. It is therefore our duty to press Libya quickly to adopt laws to safeguard international human rights and regularise the position of immigrants in the country so that they are protected against violence, exploitation, threats, intimidation and abuse.

I believe that even the new Libyan administration is aware of the seriousness of this problem.
