The High Judicial Council expressed its rejection of Human Rights Watch’s report on judicial institutions in Libya.
In a statement on Monday, the council called on the organization to collect real information from reliable sources, stressing that all courts in Libya are operating at a “very high” pace.
The council explained that Libya has nine courts of appeal each followed by a number of courts of first instance. Each court of first instance includes a number of magistrates courts, all of which operate in spite of the difficult circumstances experienced by the country.
Human Rights Watch said in its 2019 World Report that judicial institutions in Libya operate at low paces and that many courts do not operate in more than one Libyan city, according to the statement.
