WLP Partner Investigating Human Rights Violations in Libya

Posted on 03 May 2011 by

WLP’s partner in Jordan, Asma Khader, General Coordinator of WLP Jordan/Sisterhood Is Global/Jordan, is currently on a fact finding mission to Libya to investigate human rights abuses in the country. Asma joins this mission as part of the three-member independent team formed by United Nations Human Rights Council in the wake of reports of serious human rights violations in Libya since the start of a popular uprising against the Muammar Qaddafi regime. The report, which will be publicly released in the coming weeks, will include investigations into rape used as a weapon of war, the conditions and abuse of foreign workers resulting from the conflict, and other violations of human rights. Upon release of the full report, WLP will discuss Asma’s findings with her in more detail, and will share this information as it becomes available.
