DAAM Support Centre is following with great concern the kidnappings and torture that occurred during the last period in Libya, specifically in the eastern region. These acts have recently been aggravated by the abduction of Mr. Mansour Aati, a civil society activist and director of the Civil Society Commission branch as well as the Libyan Red Crescent branch in Ajdabiya, from his home. According to the available information, the latter was driven to the city of Benghazi. Thus, we demand that the security and military authorities in the eastern region clarify Mansour’s location and unveil the suspicious facts behind his kidnapping. We request that the United Nations Support Mission in Libya, the European Union in Libya, as well as the rest of the international organizations continue to pressure the security authorities to uncover the fate of Mansour Aati and the rest of the detainees in Libyan prisons.

Additionally, DAAM Centre condemns torture operations inflicted on Ms. Malak Muhammad Al-Khafaj, who was a subject to a video broadcast which contains sad scenes that are in contradiction to all norms, human rights charters and human values. The video demonstrates the shaving of the girl’s head by an outlaw group in the absence of an accountability measures including an investigation against the felons. 

Mr. Akram Najjar, Director of the Libya Program at DAAM, stated: 

"The stage that Libya is going through today is a very sensitive one that needs intensified efforts, especially with the re-emergence of the spectre of terrorist organizations on the Libyan arena. Perhaps the bombing operation carried out by one of the terrorists at the eastern gate of Sabha in the south of Libya this week is an obvious evidence that the danger still exists. This requires intensified efforts among all Libyans to protect the continuation of stability internally, and to reach safety by preserving the outcomes of the national dialogue and holding the elections on time, i.e. next December.

Mr. Akram Najjar, Director of the Libya Program at DAAM

The Democratic Transition and Human Rights’ Support Centre reminds all those who proceed or cogitate of initiating such crimes that justice will be served as they will be punished as such crimes are imprescriptible.
DAAM centre also calls on the international community and the international and European support missions based Libya to work and cooperate with the Libyans, by sticking to the dates of the elections in December 2021, and not compromising or spoiling the results of the national dialogue.
