NCHRL demands ending public identification of suspects

The National Committee for Human Rights in Libya (NCHRL) urged all security and military authorities in the country not to publicly reveal the identities of detainees or post their confessions through social media.

The committee explained that public identification of suspects before their conviction is a violation of the provisions of Article 59 of the Libyan Code of Criminal Procedure, which stipulates the confidentiality of investigations and its results.

It also affirmed that such acts violate rights of defendants as stipulated in Articles 7 and 11 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
