The Government of National Unity did not respond to a request of information made by the United Nations last July over the disappearance of Mansour Al-Maghrabi, the head of the Libyan Red Crescent branch in the eastern city of Ajdabiya, according to a U.N. official.
Mary Lawlor, the U.N. Special Rapporteur on Human Rights Defenders, said last week that the Libyan government was given two months to respond to the information request but the U.N. still has received anything from it.
Lawlor alleges that Libyan Internal Security Agency may be responsible for Al-Maghrabi’s disappearance.
Last June, Al-Maghrabi was seized by unknown men while driving in downtown Ajdabiya. To this day, his fate and whereabouts remain unknown.
Now Public: #HRD Mansour Mohamed Atti Al-Maghrabi may have been disappeared by 🇱🇾 Libyan Internal Security Agency officers. I wrote to the Government of #Libya last July – they were given two months to respond but still no information has been received.https://t.co/RitWZe8b9p
