Libya Accountability Updates: Issue 1

July 28, 2023

Welcome to the first edition of Libya Accountability Updates. This is a quarterly look at the accountability situation in Libya, brought to you by Lawyers for Justice in Libya (LFJL), with the support of Libya Crimes Watch (LCW).

In 2023, human rights violations and international crimes continue taking place across Libya with impunity, and domestic justice efforts appear no closer to achieving meaningful accountability. International efforts for justice in Libya also hang in the balance with the closure of the UN Fact-Finding Mission (FFM) on Libya in March. At the same time, the announcement of new International Criminal Court (ICC) arrest warrants in the Libya situation in May is a promising development. Meanwhile, the Special Rapporteur on Violence against Women and Girls in May also published a report on her visit to Libya in December 2022, reflecting a grim reality.

In this first edition, we provide information on violations documented in Libya and analyse developments on the international stage. To contribute to future editions of this update, please contact LFJL at:
