The National Commission for Human Rights in Libya (NCHRL) has welcomed and praised the security operation carried out successfully by the 444th Brigade on Friday in the city of Bani Walid, which resulted in the liberation of at least 70 migrants, along with the arrest of a number of human traffickers accused of detaining them.

In a statement, the NCHRL stressed the significance of fighting organized crime gangs, particularly those involved in human trafficking and migrant smuggling.

They reiterated that the tracing of the human smuggler networks was paramount in order to subvert and prosecute those responsible within the organized gangs in Libya and in the western region in particular.
