The UN envoy for Libya is warning that the oil-rich country’s “perverse economic model” based on corruption and trafficking in people and goods “must be shattered” to end its political crisis and progress toward stability and democratic elections this year.

After Ghassan Salame addressed the Security Council on Monday, U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley disclosed that its 15 members are considering putting six leaders of human trafficking networks on the UN sanctions blacklist.

Salame also warned that the continuing influence of armed groups on politics and the economy “is perilous, and unless resisted is in danger of expanding.”
