Libya Accountability Updates: Issue 3

February 29, 2024

Welcome to the third 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 the closing months of 2023, the electoral process registered some advancements with the 6+6 Committee achieving compromise on contentious issues. Since 1 November, Libya has a constitutional and legal framework for national elections in place. The House of Representatives (HoR) also published Laws No. 27 and 28 on the National Assembly and Presidential elections in the Official Gazette. In parallel, ongoing restrictions of civic space, violence, arbitrary arrests and detentions of civilians characterised this period, and the human rights and humanitarian situation of migrants remains of concern. Several deadly shipwrecks off Libya were documented.

In this third edition, we provide information on violations documented in Libya between October 2023 - January 2024 and reflect on last year’s Assembly of States Parties (ASP) alongside civil society from Libya, Ukraine and Sudan.
