New UN rights report depicts ‘turmoil, lawlessness’ in Libya


UNITED NATIONS, United States: A report produced jointly by the United Nations High Commission for Human Rights and the UN Support Mission in Libya  “paints a bleak picture” of the human rights situation in the country during 2014, the High Commissioner’s spokesperson said on Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila) in Geneva. The report, which will be presented to the UN Human Rights Council in March, depicts a country suffering from increasing turmoil and lawlessness, inflamed by a multitude of competing, heavily armed groups and a broadening political crisis. Against such a backdrop, it calls for bolstering State institutions, urges accountability for rights violations and support for the ongoing political dialogue.
