On the anniversary of the Murzuq massacre … Jurists remember the crime and criticize the government performance in prosecuting the perpetrators.

Yesterday marked the first anniversary of the Murzuq massacre, in which 40 civilians were killed and more than 50 wounded, as a result of the bombing of an Emirati drone to a rally of the city’s population, consisting of the Tabu component.


This massacre, which is written in bold letters in the record of the crimes committed by Haftar all over the country , will be pursue him and his supporters in international and domestic courts, especially after the Tabu Congress filed a case with the International Criminal Court.

A traumatic event


Lawyer and human rights activist Abdulbasit Alhaddad described the massacre as a horrible incident that confirmed Haftar’s use of foreign mercenaries, both on land and in the air.


Alhaddad added, in a statement to Arraed, that the judicial, executive and legislative authorities turned a blind eye to this crime, and did not open any domestic investigation or demand an international investigation.
Alhaddad added, “The government should take serious steps towards these facts, classifying them as war crimes and crimes against humanity.”


Governmental deficiencies


For his part, the lawyer and human rights activist Faisal Alsharif considered the Murzuq massacre a crime against humanity, and it is a shame that the International Criminal Court did not move to hold the perpetrators accountable.


Alsharif added, in a statement to Arraed, that there are deficiencies from the GNA and its legal and judicial arms and representatives at the international organizations on this issue.


War crime


The head of the “Victims” Organization for Human Rights, Nasser Alhawari, said that the Murzuq massacre is a war crime that is added to the crimes committed by the Haftar militias, and that the international community’s silence on those crimes makes us more determined to pursue the perpetrators.


Alhawari added, in a statement to Arraed, that the effort of the GNA institutions is appreciated in the issue of war crimes, the Ministries of Justice and the Interior exposed these crimes, and demanded punishment for the perpetrators, but international justice is slow and requires a great deal of time and effort to be realized.
