Lawyers for Justice in Libya is disappointed by the House of Commons Foreign Affairs Committee lack of consideration of human rights issues

15 September 2016

Lawyers for Justice in Libya (LFJL) welcomes the examination by the House of Commons Foreign Affairs Committee (the Committee) of the UK government's involvement in the Libyan intervention and transition.  However, LFJL is extremely disappointed by the Committee’s failure to consider adequately, or place importance on, human rights within its assessment and recommendations. This lack of concern risks devaluing the role human rights have in guiding foreign policy decisions, especially those which concern interventions and support for transitional nations.
