Tripoli, May 21, 2024 (Lana): The EU Delegation to Libya, in a joint statement with the diplomatic missions of the European Union Member States in Libya, is concerned about the reported abduction of Ibrahim Al Dirsi, a member of the House of Representatives. 

The statement urged the competent authorities to swiftly investigate the circumstances of this disappearance and ensure the immediate release of Al Dirsi.

The delegation condemned all forms of arbitrary detention throughout Libya, including those perpetrated on political grounds. 

“The rule of law and justice must prevail, and a thorough and transparent investigation of all past and current disappearances is necessary and urgent. Those responsible need to be held to account based on the law,” the statement said.

“We join UNSMIL in reminding authorities of their obligation to respect fundamental freedoms and uphold human rights and the rule of law,” it added.
