The Address | Benghazi – Libya

TRIPOLI – The Presidential Council of the Government of National Accord (GNA) issued a decree establishing a committee to investigate conditions of detainees held in the prison of Mitiga base. The committee will be headed by Issa al-Fattouri Gemo of Attorney General’s Office, and its members include Mohammed Miftah Hamouda of the Ministry of Justice.

The decision came after damning allegations by UN panel of experts’ report, which described serious human rights violations in the prison including long solitary confinement, withholding access to medical care and deaths by torture.
