3 February 2018

Lawyers for Justice in Libya (LFJL) condemns attempts to prevent Tawerghans from returning to their hometown of Tawergha. The failed attempt to return to Tawergha follows the landmark visit by the United Nations (UN) Special Rapporteur on the human rights of internally displaced persons (IDPs) to Libya from 25-31 January. LFJL joins the Special Rapporteur in reminding the Libyan state of its primary responsibility to protect and assist IDPs, and of the need for durable solutions for all displaced persons in line with the UN Guiding Principles on Internal Displacement.
