Britain has expressed concern about the recent UN Fact-Finding Mission on Human Rights, which affirms evidence of war crimes, crimes against humanity, and gross violations of core human rights in Libya.

The British embassy in Libya demanded that transparency and accountability for human rights violations be at the heart of Libya's transition process.

The statement voiced full support for the UN Fact-Finding Mission, stressing the importance of following up this report with concrete action, including in the Human Rights Council.

The head of the UN Fact-Finding Mission, Mohamed Aujar, told reporters Monday that "there are reasonable grounds to believe that crimes against humanity have been committed against Libyans and irregular migrants throughout Libya since 2016."

Presenting the mission's latest report, Aujar said that armed groups such as Haftar's forces, the deterrence apparatus for combating terrorism and organized crime, and the stability support apparatus and their leaders have repeatedly been involved in violations and abuses.
