The Inter-Parliamentary Union called for unveiling investigation results of the east-based Abdullah Al-Thinni government about the abduction of female House of Representatives' member, Siham Sirgiwa.

The Inter-Parliamentary Union expressed disappointment at the lack of cooperation by the House of Representatives (HoR) in Sirgiwa's case, adding that such a conduct cast doubt at the HoR's impartiality.

Inter-Parliamentary Union said Al-Thinni government didn't provide evidence to refute the accusations of abduction against Awliaa Al-Dam (Blood Avengers) Brigade of Khalifa Haftar's forces.

Sirgiwa was kidnapped from her house in Benghazi in July 2019 after statements on a pro-Haftar TV channel rejecting the aggression on Tripoli at the time.
