Libya migrants: Smuggling network arrest warrants issued

Migrants are returned to Libya after being intercepted by the Libyan navy, in Tripoli, Libya 4 November 2017

Libya has issued 205 arrest warrants for Libyans and foreigners suspected of being involved in a smuggling network for migrants heading to Europe.

They include accusations of human trafficking, torture, murder and rape.

The Libyan attorney general’s office said the network included members of the security services, migrant detention camp leaders, and officials from African embassies in Libya.

Libya has been in turmoil since the fall of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.

Power is dispersed between different militias and two rival governments, allowing illegal activities to thrive.

The country has become a key point on the route of hundreds of thousands of sub-Saharan African migrants trying to reach Europe by sea.

The investigations into smuggling networks are being carried out in conjunction with the Italian prosecutor’s office after a joint unit – pooling intelligence, coastguard and justice resources – was set up last year by the two countries.

The director of the attorney general’s investigations office, Seddik al-Sour, said many immigration department officials had been found to be involved

“There are 205 warrants against the persons who organised the illegal immigration and the human trafficking, and the torture, the killing and the rapes,” he told reporters.

His office had detected a direct link between smugglers and the Islamic State group, he added.

Ghandour on Monday discussed with the visiting Director General of the International Organization for Migration (IOM) William Lacy Swing a number of issues pertaining to migration besides Sudan’s efforts to combating human trafficking and illegal migration.

Swing arrived in Khartoum on Sunday evening on a three-day visit to discuss issues of migration with the Sudanese officials.

During his meeting with the Secretary-General of the Organisation of Sudanese Expatriates Affairs (OSEA) Karar al-Tuhami, Swing praised OSEA efforts in combating human trafficking and illegal migration as well as the transfer of knowledge.

He pointed out that his visit to Sudan comes within the framework of learning about the efforts of the OSEA in migration issues.

Swing hailed OSEA initiative to establish the Sudan Centre for Migration Studies, vowing to support and elevate the centre into a regional research and capacity building centre.

Sudan is considered as a country of origin and transit for the illegal migration and human trafficking. Thousands of people from Eritrea and Ethiopia are monthly crossing the border into the Sudanese territories on their way to Europe through Libya or Egypt.

In January 2014, the Sudanese parliament approved an anti-human trafficking law which punishes those involved with human trafficking with up to 20 years imprisonment.

Also, Khartoum in 2014 hosted a conference on human trafficking in the Horn of Africa, organised by the African Union (AU), the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the IOM and the Sudanese government.

The East African nation has also forged a strategic partnership with several European countries and the EU to combat illegal migration and human trafficking.
