Libya: No Contact With Abducted Politician For Months: Siham Sergiwa

, Index number: MDE 19/1263/2019

On 17 July 2019, Libyan parliamentarian and prominent woman’s rights defender Siham Sergiwa was brutally abducted from her home in Benghazi by armed gunmen, after publicly criticising the self-proclaimed Libyan National Army’s military campaign to seize Tripoli. No contact has been made with her since her abduction more than three months ago, raising grave fears that she is at risk of torture or other forms of ill-treatment.
