Arab European Center for Human Rights and International Law hails Misurata-Tawergha reconciliation
The Secretary-General of the Arab European Center for Human Rights and International Law (AECHRIL), Dr. Ramadan Benzeer has told Libyan News that they were happy to see the cities of Tawergha and Misurata reconcile and bring an end to their dispute that lasted seven years.
“We were glad to see the two cities’ representatives sign the coexistence and reconciliation agreement that would allow IDPs to return to their city. I have been exerting efforts on this humanitarian issue since 2014, meeting with several stakeholders from both cities to reach a final agreement of consent to both sides.” Dr. Benzeer explained.
He added that the (AECHRIL) had put previously a plan on the table for ending the dispute between Misurata and Tawergha, yet the inaction of the government at the time did not help materialize the plan on the ground.
“I extend thanks to all parties involved in making this peaceful reconciliation a reality, especially my dear friend the head of the local council of Tawergha, Abdelrahman Al-Shakshak, who was very cooperative in the process leading toward such a historic achievement in Libya.” Dr. Benzeer elaborated.
On Sunday, the Libyan cities of Misurata and Tawergha signed a historic reconciliation charter that will oversee the return of the stranded Tawerghan IDPs return to their city after over seven years of displacement.
