The National Commission for Human Rights in Libya (NCHRL) welcomed the final report of the independent fact-finding mission on Libya, which will be presented to the United Nations Human Rights Council in the 50th session, adding in a statement on Wednesday that the report constituted a wake-up call for the human rights situation in Libya, which "requires the Libyan authorities to deal with what it stated in it with full responsibility and courage to face the challenges that affect the rule of law."

The NCHRL recommended that relevant authorities should develop a comprehensive national plan that takes into account what has been said in the final recommendations of the fact-finding report to address the violations of human rights and international humanitarian law.

It also said that the report's revelation of "appalling violations of human rights and international humanitarian law" obliged the concerned Libyan authorities to take serious and decisive steps to strengthen the rule of law and justice, end impunity, guarantee the rights of victims, and ensure that such incidents could not be repeated.

The fact-finding report said that there were “reasonable grounds to believe that war crimes have been committed in Libya,” noting that violence and abuses in prisons and against immigrants may amount to crimes against humanity.
