Over the course of 2023 up until Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) ended medical activities in Tripoli in August, MSF witnessed and documented living conditions and abuses inside Abu Salim and Ain Zara detention centers, where thousands of people, including women and children, continue to be arbitrarily detained. The findings are contained in the report “You’re going to die here” – Abuse in Abu Salim and Ain Zara detention centers, published by MSF last December.
MSF calls for an end to arbitrary detention in Libya, and calls for all refugees, asylum seekers and migrants to be released from detention centers and to be provided with meaningful protection, safe shelter, and safe and legal pathways out of Libya.
