Human Rights Watch says justice and accountability for crimes carried out during Libya’s years-long conflict is “key” after the two main rival sides signed a ceasefire agreement. Al Jazeera reports that the Government of National Accord and Khalifa Haftar’s self-styled Libyan National Army last Friday signed a “permanent ceasefire” accord after UN-sponsored talks in Geneva but the ceasefire does not provide “a clear commitment and a pathway to accountability for the serious crimes” perpetrated by the foreign-backed warring parties. Another “flaw”, according to the rights group, is the absence of any commitment in the deal to holding accountable fighters who stand to be demobilised and integrated into state security forces.
