Human rights abuses in Libya under Gaddafi
A collection of over thirty personal accounts of human rights abuses suffered during the Gaddafi era in Libya.
Human rights abuses were rife in Libya during the 42 years that preceded the 2011 revolution that unseated Muammar Gaddafi. The revolution itself also witnessed abuses at the hands of people from both sides of the conflict. In order to ensure that such disregard for human rights prevalent throughout Gaddafi’s regime does not continue, victims of Gaddafi-era abuses need to feel heard, their anguish recognised, their calls for justice acknowledged, and their understanding of human rights strengthened.
