Jordan- EU governments complicit in migrant torture in Libya, says Amnesty


(MENAFN - Jordan News Agency) Washington, Dec. 12 (Petra)-- European governments are knowingly complicit in the torture and abuse of refugees and migrants in Libya, Amnesty International has alleged.

In an effort to stem migration, the EU is actively supporting a "system of abuse and exploitation" on Libyan shores, the group said in a report.

EU funds are going to authorities working with militias and people smugglers, the report says.

The EU has provided ships, training and funding to the Libyan coastguard.
