Libya’s GNA Foreign Ministry calls for revealing the whereabouts of abducted female lawmaker

The Libyan Foreign Ministry of the Government of National Accord has called for revealing the whereabouts of the abducted member of the House of Representatives Siham Sirgiwa, urging the Security Council and international organizations to take up their responsibilities toward this entanglement.

In a statement celebrating the International Women’s Day, the Libyn Foreign Ministry reiterated support for Libyan displaced women’s rights to return home.

It added that Libyan women and girls are clawing their ways into participating in building the country and achieving peace and stability.

Meanwhile, the European Union and Canada’s Heads of Missions renewed their call for the immediate release of the member of Siham Sergiwa, who has been kidnapped from her house in Benghazi in July 2019 by forces loyal to Khalifa Haftar.

The EU and Canada missions called on the concerned authorities to take up their responsibilities and to probe the abduction of the Libyan female lawmaker.

Sergiwa has been very critical of the pro-Haftar militias’ behavior in eastern Libya, especially in Benghazi, where she lived, and that didn’t ring a good bell for diehard followers of Haftar.
