Libya: Militias threaten hopes for new Libya
The Libyan authorities face a considerable challenge in their efforts to bring under control the numerous militias that have largely taken the law into their own hands and to ensure the necessary reforms of the judicial system and its effective functioning. In a period of transition, it is imperative that the authorities firmly demonstrate their commitment to turning the page on decades of gross and widespread violations in Libya. Amnesty International calls on the Libyan authorities to implement the recommendations made in this document as a matter of priority.
