Libya: UN, government official abducted – Ultima Ora

Published on


(ANSA) – Tripoli, August 11 – Rida Faraz Fritz, head of the cabinet of one of Libya’s two deputy premiers, was abducted by gunmen in the capital, Tripoli, last week, the United Nations said.

Unsmil fears that the abduction will have “serious repercussions” on the process of “peace and reconciliation.”

The Tripoli-based transitional government has not yet responded to the kidnapping, which has not yet been reported in local newspapers. At the beginning of the year in Libya, a United Nations-led government of national unity and transformation was formed to lead the country in the legislative and presidential elections to be held in December. But despite the progress at the political level, the security situation is very dangerous. UNSMIL called on the Libyan authorities to “thoroughly investigate all allegations of international human rights violations, including the record of illegal arrests, detentions, enforced disappearances, torture and unlawful executions.” (On the handle).
