Libyan Crime Watch has confirmed the killing of Ahmed Bufanara inside the prison of the Tariq bin Ziyad Brigade, which is affiliated with Khalifa Haftar’s forces, in the city of Benghazi, saying in a statement that the Bufanara's family have received the body of the victim from Al-Jalaa Hospital on Friday "and the body had clear signs of torture."

Libyan Crime Watch added that Bufanara was arrested on October 10 by the Internal Security Apparatus, following the arrest campaign that came after the military operation against former Defense Minister Mahdi Al-Barghathi.

It held the security and military authorities in eastern Libya fully responsible for this crime, which is a flagrant violation of international humanitarian law, and demanded that the fate of all forcibly disappeared persons be revealed and their immediate and unconditional release.

Libyan Crime Watch also called on the Libyan Attorney General to open an urgent and transparent investigation into this crime, and to hold those responsible accountable.
