Tripoli, February 28, 2024 (LANA) - The United Nations Support Mission in Libya reaffirmed today, Wednesday, the necessity of putting the victims at the heart of any national reconciliation process.

In a post on its Facebook page, the mission refused to grant amnesty for war crimes, crimes against humanity, and serious violations of international human rights law, after the conclusion of the activities of the conference “Supporting a Comprehensive Process for National Reconciliation and Transitional Justice,” which was held in Tripoli last Monday and Tuesday.

The mission said that the conference is part of broader efforts facilitated by the United Nations mission to support a comprehensive reconciliation process based on rights and transitional justice centered on victims in Libya.

It was added that enhancing the safe and meaningful participation of victims and setting clear terms and conditions around amnesties were among the most important recommendations presented yesterday, Tuesday, by more than 95 representatives of victims and civil society organizations at the conclusion of the conference, which focused on victims and was based on rights in Libya.

It was also indicated that representatives of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya were joined by the representative in the Presidential Council, Abdullah Al-Lafi, and Al-Taher Al-Baour, in charge of running the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in addition to experts in transitional justice, where they made presentations on reconciliation experiences in countries such as Guatemala, Rwanda, and Colombia.
