Amnesty says EU is complicit in the torture of refugees in Libya

  • The EU is strongly supporting abuse and exploitation of migrants in Libya, says Amnesty International in a report. The report also states that EU funds are going to authorities that are associated with people smugglers. Training, funding and ships are also provided to the Libyan coastguard by the EU. Libya acts as the main passage for migrants who are keen to reach Europe. As EU is providing funds to the Libyan coastguard the arrivals in Italy has witnessed a downfall.
