The Address | Benghazi – Libya

NEW YORK – The United Nations special envoy, Ghassan Salamé, stressed on Wednesday in his speech to United Nations Human Rights Council the need to “address the impunity of armed groups”.

Salamé said that “imposing sanctions on six human-traffickers” represents “the first step in order to undermine the confidence of the perpetrators of crimes for what they are doing”.

“The UN mission supports the appointment of a special rapporteur on Libya for human rights” Salamé announced.

In his speech, the UN envoy also urged “the Libyan authorities to review the security arrangements in Tripoli to change the current situation that is unlikely and unsustainable.” Stressing that “security can not remain in the hands of armed groups”.
