Libya: Killing of 12 detainees after court orders their release must be investigated
Twelve former detainees were shot dead on 9 or 10 June 2016, shortly after an order by the Libyan Supreme Court for their ‘release under supervision’ from the al-Baraka prison (commonly known as al-Ruwaimi) in Tripoli. Amnesty International is calling on Libyan authorities to immediately act on their pledge to conduct an investigation into the killings and break Libya’s endemic cycle of impunity by holding to account those found to be responsible. The investigation must be thorough and impartial and have the necessary powers and resources to be effective.
