Amnesty International: Al-Barasi was killed following her intention to expose the corruption of the Eastern Region and Saddam Haftar.

Amnesty International condemned the assassination of lawyer Hanan Al-Barasi in the city of Benghazi, for her criticism of persons associated with armed groups in the Eastern region.

The organization added – on its official account on Twitter – Tuesday, that Al-Barasi, announced the day before her death, her intention to publish a video about the corruption of Saddam the son of Haftar, pointing out that her killing is evidence of the risks faced by Libyan women who talk about political matters, and face abuse and threats on Social Communication sites, without investigation.

The organization called on the so-called “Libyan Arab Armed Forces” to urgently investigate the process of her killing and to bring those responsible to justice.

It is worth noting that an armed group assassinated, on Tuesday, the human rights activist Hanan Al-Barasi, known as “Azzouz Barqa”, with a number of bullets, in the center of Benghazi, in Ishreen Street , minutes after her criticism of the military rule of Haftar and his sons.
