The United Nations Human Right Council has extended the mandate of the fact-finding mission on Libya during its 50th session on Friday.
The council adopted, without a vote, a resolution on technical assistance and capacity building to improve human rights in Libya. This resolution stipulates the extension of the fact-finding mission for “a final, non-extendable period of nine months to present its concluding recommendations,” according to the Office of the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR).
The Netherlands, which is part of Libya’s Human Rights Working Group, welcomed the renewal of the fact-finding mission and commended the Libyan authorities for “their cooperation with the Mission.”
“The FFM’s work is indispensable for the road to lasting peace, justice and accountability for Libya,” stated the Dutch Mission in the U.N. via Twitter.
