Amnesty International blames European governments for torture of immigrants in Libya

Amnesty International is alleging that European Governments are complicit in the torture and abuse of refugees and immigrants in Libya.

In a report, the group said that in its efforts to address the problem of immigration, the EU is supporting abusive systems of exploitation on Libyan shores.

The report added that EU funds are going to the authorities which work with the militia and human traffickers.

Amnesty International also alleged that the coastguard is working with criminal rings who are guilty of a wide range of abuses, with the group adding that this is all being done with the full knowledge of EU officials.
