The United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL), renewed its call for an in-depth investigation into the kidnapping of Seham Sergiwa, a member of the House of Representatives (HoR), from her home in the city of Benghazi.

UNSMIL, in a statement issued on the occasion of the first anniversary of her kidnapping, expressed its hope that the international investigation would reveal her fate or whereabouts and bring the perpetrators to justice, pointing out that the authorities in the east of the country were directly responsible, by law, for the safety and security of all persons in the territories under its control.
