The Urgent Need for Human Rights Reform
January 25, 2006

This 84-page report is based primarily on Human Rights Watch’s first-ever trip to Libya, made in mid-2005, which the organization praised as a welcome step towards transparency. The authorities provided access to a wide range of high-level officials, as well as police stations, an immigration detention center and five prisons, where 32 prisoners were interviewed in private. However, government guides escorted Human Rights Watch researchers at all other times and controlled unauthorized contact with Libyans and foreigners in the country.
