Libya to investigate prison torture allegations: Deputy PM

-

The Libyan government is to investigate reports by rights groups that former rebels who fought to oust Muammar Gaddafi are now torturing detainees in makeshift prisons around the country, Deputy Prime Minister Mustafa Abu Shagour said on Tuesday.

“Any violations of human rights will be subject to investigations,” Abu Shagour told a two-day workshop organised by the United Nations and the European Union to address Libya’s immediate priorities in the transitional period.

“We are asking all revolutionaries to respect human rights,” he added.
