Justice Delayed is Justice Denied: Atrocities in Libya must not Go Unpunished

The failure to investigate war crimes in Libya delays justice for the victims of atrocities and undermines negotiations to bring an end to the conflict in the North African country.

The first section of the report will provide an overview of the global cooperation on international criminal justice, the founding statute of the ICC and the jurisdiction of the Court, with regard to the Libyan conflict. The next section will address the war crimes and crimes against humanity allegedly committed by the Libyan National Army (LNA) under the command of Khalifa Haftar and by his local and foreign supporters. The third section will discuss the responsibility for these crimes under the jurisdiction of the ICC, as well as within other jurisdictions, and look into the consequences of the delay in investigating the aforementioned acts on the implementation of the international humanitarian law and peace-building process in Libya.
