Libya Accountability Updates: Issue 2

October 31, 2023

Welcome to the second 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 September 2023, the catastrophic onset of Storm Daniel in eastern Libya that caused the collapse of two nearby dams, shook the region and put Libya back in the global spotlight as victims and onlookers asked who was to blame for the scale of destruction and staggering death toll. In the political arena, new electoral laws drafted by the 6 + 6 Joint Committee were reportedly recently approved by the House of Representatives (HoR), indicating that Libya’s road to national elections may soon reopen after two years of delay. Meanwhile, sporadic pockets of violence and ongoing human rights violations continue to take place across the country with near total impunity.

In this second 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:
