Libyan NGO calls for suing Haftar’s forces
A local Libyan NGO has called for suing Haftar’s forces for the crimes they committed during their military offensive on the capital, Tripoli, in 2019.
In a video appeal, Kamal Al-Jamal, the head of the Association of the Families of the Martyrs of Volcano of Anger, urged the families “to hurry up to the judicial and executive authorities to initiate a public lawsuit” against Haftar’s forces.
“Justice will not be realised unless the perpetrators are truly held accountable by the judicial authorities,” Al-Jamal said, noting that complaints submitted to the Public Prosecutor have so far been “neglected and placed in the drawers.”
Established in August 2020, the association’s main objective is to support the families of Libyan soldiers and civilians who lost their lives to wars.
A total of 2,180 families are registered in the association.
