Ghana Embassy in Libya, in collaboration with the International Organization for Migration (IOM), on 26th October facilitated the repatriation of the fourth batch of 169 Ghanaians from Tripoli to Accra under the Voluntary Humanitarian Return (VHR) program for the year 2023, the Embassy announced.

Observers have questioned whether the 4.8 million euros will truly help curb irregular migration and human trafficking. Critics argue the money could end up in the wrong hands in Libya’s unstable political climate. There is also concern that rather than repatriating migrants, the funds may go towards settling them permanently in Libya without addressing the root causes driving them to leave their home countries. The intentions behind Italy’s pledge remain unclear.
