The United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) renewed its calls on the Libyan authorities to conduct a comprehensive investigation into the violent Kidnapping and enforced disappearance of lawmaker, Siham Sergewa, from her home in Benghazi, to bring the perpetrators to full justice.

UNSMIL added in a statement issued on Saturday, July 17, on the two-year anniversary of the incident, that the kidnapping of MP Siham Sergewa and the enforced disappearance of hundreds of individuals constitutes a grave violation of Libya’s obligations under international humanitarian laws and international human rights laws.
