France commends sanctions on human traffickers in Libya

The French Foreign Ministry praised on Saturday the Security Council’s imposition of individual sanctions on persons “involved in human trafficking and smuggling of migrants in Libya.”

The French Foreign Ministry said in a statement on its official website, the resolution adopted by the UN Security Council demonstrates the resolve of the international community to combat “inhumane” trafficking of human beings.

The ministry added that these activities fuel a “crime-based” economy and threaten the stability of Libya, neighboring countries and Euro-Mediterranean countries, stressing that “the perpetrators of these crimes should not be escape punishment.”

 

On Thursday, the Security Council’s sanctions committee imposed sanctions on six individuals for involvement in smuggling migrants from Libya to Europe.
