“The Libyan General National Congress’ (GNC) adopted the Law Criminalising Torture, Enforced Disappearances and Discrimination on 9 April.  Lawyers for Justice in Libya (LFJL), REDRESS, the DIGNTIY – Danish Institute Against Torture (DIGNITY), and the World Organisation Against Torture (OMCT) welcome the GNC’s initiative to provide a legislative framework for the prohibition and criminalisation of some of the most serious crimes including torture and enforced disappearances. However, the organisations remain concerned that the provisions of the new law do not fully conform with Libya’s international obligations.”
