Situation of migrants in Libya

  Charles Tannock (ECR), in writing. – There is no doubting the importance of this issue; many thousands of migrants face genuine human rights abuses while incarcerated in Libya, and are subject to substantive discrimination when at liberty. But I have real reservations about the timing of this resolution: the new government, the first to be democratically elected in half a century, was sworn in literally a week ago, and has had no opportunity to improve the human rights situation for migrants, or indeed, citizens in general. Nevertheless, it is important that the new government finds ways of regularizing the legal situation of these migrants, or assisting in their safe and orderly return to their countries of origin. I hope that this problem can be resolved satisfactorily, as the new Libya faces many challenges in its reconstruction and transition to a multi-party democracy, and needs all the help from the international community that it can get.
