Libya: Scapegoats of fear: Rights of refugees, asylum-seekers and migrants abused in Libya
The human rights of tens of thousands of foreign nationals, including many asylum-seekers and refugees, are being routinely violated by the government and various militias in Libya. Against a background of political instability and lawlessness, foreign nationals are being exploited, arrested and indefinitely detained pending deportation. This report shows that the government has failed to combat the growing xenophobia and racism that are fuelling the abuses and spreading baseless fears about foreign nationals, and has yet to implement an asylum system to protect those fleeing persecution.
