The Association of Families of Martyrs of the Abu Salim Prison Massacre expressed anger at “the failure to achieve justice in case of the martyrs of the massacre until now."

On the 28th anniversary of the massacre, the association asked: "Isn’t it time for the victims of the massacre to be given justice, after they were wronged and oppressed while they were still alive?”

It demanded “that the secrets of the crime be revealed, justice be established, retribution be imposed, and that everyone who participated in this horrific massacre receive their deserved punishment.”

The Association cited the families of the victims as saying, “It is unthinkable, 28 years after the massacre, and 13 years after the fall of Gaddafi’s regime, during whose reign the crime was committed, that the law remains incapable of saying its fair and conclusive word on this terrible tragedy."

The Association organized an exhibition on the anniversary of the massacre, which included the victims’ belongings that reached them from prison, in addition to their personal photos, amid a state of pain and grief that was reflected in their adherence to “retribution” despite the passage of 28 years.
