UNSMIL concerned over kidnap of electoral commission employee

The United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) has expressed concern over the arrest of, Hassan Al-Faghl, the chairperson of the subcommittee of the municipality of Qasr Al-Akhiyar and employee of the Central Committee for Municipal Council Elections (CCMCE).

UNSMIL said the detention of Al-Faghl, since 19 May, violates Libya’s national laws and international obligations and poses a serious threat to the CCMCE’s institutional independence, obstructing its mandate to administer, organize and supervise local electoral processes in Libya.

UNSMIL also called on the Libyan Public Prosecution to conduct a speedy, thorough and transparent investigation into this matter.
