The National Committee for Human Rights in Libya (NCHRL) held the Ministry of Interior of the Government of National Unity (GNU) legally responsible for the death of the football player from Yarmouk Club, Mohammed Al-Ramali, in Al-Maya police station prison.
NCHRL called on the Office of the Attorney General to open a comprehensive investigation into the circumstances of the killing of the citizen and footballer, and to allow his body to undergo a forensic analysis to determine the cause of death.
It also called on the Office of the Attorney General to open a comprehensive investigation into the violations and crimes attributed to the members of the Ministry of Interior to ensure that the perpetrators are prosecuted and brought to justice, and to guarantee the rights of the victims and those affected by these heinous criminal acts.
NCHRL reaffirmed the importance of ending the state of impunity that had been prevailing across the country, and that represented the biggest motive for committing such gross violations of human rights and of the rule of law and justice, indicating that the circumstances of the incident were "shrouded in mystery and that there was a suspicion that the victim died under torture by members of the Criminal Investigation Department in Janzour or by members of the Maya police station."
Meanwhile, well-informed sources confirmed the death of Al-Ramali in mysterious circumstances after he was detained by the Criminal Investigation Department in Janzour because of a report accusing him of committing a crime on August 08.
