Malta: The El Hiblu 3 case - Update. The Long Wait for Justice

, Index number: EUR 33/3884/2021

Two years on, the lives of the ‘El Hiblu 3’ remain on hold as they await their trial in Malta. If found guilty, they face life in prison. Amnesty International is concerned that after surviving the unlawful attempt to return them to Libya, they are being unjustly criminalized for opposing that attempt, which if successful, would have exposed them and over 100 other people to grave risks to their lives. Amnesty International calls on the Maltese authorities to drop the case against the El Hiblu 3 so they can get on with their lives. No-one should have to face life in prison for opposing their return to torture and suffering in Libya.
