Libyan Representative at UN Human Rights Council: Intervening countries deny us the right to life
The Libyan Representative at the UN Human Rights Council Tamim Bayo has called on the countries intervening in Libya and causing people's suffering to give Libyans the right to "life, peace and prosperity."
Bayo said in his briefing at the Human Rights Council that the international community bears shared responsibility for how things turned out in Libya as it could help the country by regaining people's trust by tangible results on the ground.
He also said that Libyans had been cooperating with the international community for a decade but now needed more collaboration and political will so that the suffering can end and human rights violations can be handled.
Bayo stressed the need for technical support for a better governance in Libya and for mechanisms that help fighting corruption and ending impunity as well as activating accountability against all the countries that are violating the UN arms embargo on Libya "and more than that."
"We need assistance in border management against illicit trafficking and cross-border criminal enterprise so that Libya can be stable. We need the return of diplomatic missions to the county and the good work of international organizations that will have good impact on everyone." He said.
Bayo added that there's now a chance for a sustainable peace as dialogues are taking place in different countries hoping to see tangible results toward building a stable Libya, which leads to a stable region.
