The Address | Benghazi – Libya

TRIPOLI – The Head of the International Organization Cooperation & Emergency Aid (IOCEA) Jamal al-Mabrouk said on Monday that several detention centers in Libya are carrying out flagrant violations, especially those located in militia-ruled areas.

Speaking to London-based Asharq Al-Awsat newspaper, Mabrouk demanded the immediate closure of the centers.

The IOCEA chief’s remarks coincided with the first anniversary of the bloody attack on a detention center in Tajoura, east of Tripoli.

At least 52 migrants were killed and 87 others were injured in one of the deadliest incidents since the conflict in the capital began in April 2019.
