The Libyan Foreign Minister, Najla Al-Mangoush, briefed the United Nations Human Rights Council on the Government of National Unity’s (GNU) efforts to undermine impunity and preserve the rights of victims, stressing that Libya asked the Council to send a fact-finding mission to document violations, and is awaiting the final report.
Al-Mangoush participated via Zoom in the opening of the 52nd session of the United Nations Human Rights Council on Wednesday, and stressed the importance of working on the principle of “justice, especially for victims and activists of human rights who seek to build a strong society that respects human rights and is run by a just civil authority”.
She said that the achievement of human rights is a long process, and Libya just like other countries is working to consolidate the principle of human rights, and looks forward to a better future.
Al-Mangoush also presented the steps taken by the GNU in the field of human rights, including the launching of a national mechanism for preparing reports and follow-ups to implement international recommendations, issuing decisions that enhance the protection of human rights, and strengthening the role of the judicial authorities. She explained as well the challenges that accompany the process of democratic transition after decades of violations and conflicts.
