 EU complicit in the arrest and torture of Gambian, African migrants in Libya-Human rights watch

By Alhassan Darboe

European Union in a bid to stop the migration of African migrants including Gambians to Europe via the Mediterranean,has been found complicit in collaborating with Libya government and militias which led to the detention, torture and, rape of African migrants. In a report issued by Human Rights Watch earlier this year, the investigators noted: “European Union (EU) migration cooperation with Libya is contributing to a cycle of extreme abuse. The EU is providing support to the Libyan Coast Guard to enable it to intercept migrants and asylum seekers at sea after which they take them back to Libya to arbitrary detention, where they face inhuman and degrading conditions and the risk of torture, sexual violence, extortion, and forced labor.”
