Minister of Justice of the Presidential Council's government, Mohamed Lamloum, said that human rights violations in Libya are not being committed in a systematic manner, insisting that such practices are merely individual acts.

"The government is making all efforts to monitor and prosecute those involved in such acts," the minister said.

In a speech to the Human Rights Council in Geneva on Tuesday, Lamloum added that they had released two thousand and one hundred and four detainees from Mitiga Prison recently; whose detention have exceeded the legal term, and for health and humanitarian conditions, including former regime supporters, foremost among them was senior security figure, Abuzed Omar Dorda.
