Zur Situation der Geflüchteten in Tripolis während der gegenwärtigen Verteilungskämpfe zwischen verschiedenen Milizen hat ReliefWeb am 30.08. zwei Berichte zu den aktuellen Aktivitäten von IOM und UNHCR in Tripolis veröffentlicht.
As part of a joint humanitarian response coordinated between the UN agencies and international organizations, UNHCR distributed core-relief items including 500 blankets in Abu Slim detention centre, while IOM provided mattresses, food and beverages to more than 400 migrants, including 322 evacuated from other unsafe locations. MSF teams are conducting medical consultations, as well as providing food, water and nutritional supplements to people still in detention centres.
Über die Situation in den Flüchtlingslagern in Libyen hat das Global Detention Center einen Report herausgegeben:
Libya is notoriously perilous for refugees, asylum seekers, and migrants, who often suffer a litany of abuses, including at the country’s numerous detention facilities. Conditions at these facilities, many of which are under the control of militias, are deplorable. There are frequent shortages of water and food; over-crowding is endemic; detainees can experience physical mistreatment and torture; forced labour and slavery are rife; and there is a stark absence of oversight and regulation. Nevertheless, Italy and the European Union continue to strike controversial migration control deals with various actors in Libya aimed at reducing flows across the Mediterranean. These arrangements include equipping Libyan farces to “rescue” intercepted migrants and refugees at sea, investing in detention centres, and paying militias to control migration.
Zwei Special Reports zur Situation der Geflüchteten in Libyen wurden im Juli auf IRINNEWS veröffentlicht.
