      Tripoli

IT IS NOT OVER!

THOUSANDS YET TO BE ACCOUNTED FOR.

Today the Libyan National Transitional Council affirms that it has a list of over 57 000 names of people who have been detained on political motifs, since before and during the conflict with Gaddafi loyalists.

Shamseddin Ben Ali (NTC) says that although ca. 11 000 prisoners have been released recently from political prisons, over 45 000 (!!!) are still unaccounted for. Mr Ben Ali asks for any information pertaining to their possible whereabouts.

It has been suggested that tens of thousands are being detained in underground prisons. M. Ben Ali calls on the humanity of any guards or others who may be able to help find these prisoners, believed to be held in bunkers, and may be without food or care since over 6 days.

Please sign this petition to give each and every one of those still detained a voice. Their stories must be told and heard.

mid- August 2011:

From Tripoli based source:

The most crowded prison is Ayn Zara. Several people perish anonymously in this prison daily. The incarcerated population suffers from numerus diseases, mainly skin diseases. The number of prisoners in this facility is uncertain, but most likely close to 10 000. Prisoners are allowed only 20 minutes of access to water a day for hygiene and to drink. The water is available from 10 waist high taps for the entire population. Food consists of a piece of bread roughly the size of a palm.

Prisoners in Tripoli jails are detained under false identities called "Indirect Life Sentences". This is used to foil lawyers and families attempts to find them.

They have no civil, social or simply basic human rights.

They have done nothing wrong. These are Men, Women and CHILDREN who have been accused by Gaddafi regime informants of being against the tyrannical leader.

These Libyans do not have a voice.

One Signature = One Voice

Without a strong mobilisation from the international community, thousands of innocent Libyan prisoners will remain in anonymously silenced by Gaddafi's oppression, terror and brutality.

Their fate, as the opposition forces approach the Libyan Capital may be in terrible danger.

Please sign the petition and ask for International Organisations to ACT IMMEDIATELY  and assess the penitentiary situation in Tripoli.

Thank you.

      all the anti-Gaddafi prisoners in & out of tripoli who had been arrested during the uprising against Gaddafi, they've right to take a sigh of relief like other free people. Gaddafi can think them as rats, cruel animals and AL Qaeda but to the world inhabitants including all Libyan citizens, those prisoners are innocent & brave heroes. the greatest prophet Mohammad(PUH) said: "those persons are the best persons who demonstrate against their bad rulers face to face." So I demand: the best citizens of Libya should be released from the torture cells of Gaddafi regime right now.

      another appeal to all of Libyans:

      I'm requesting every body here, it seems final victory is coming within days. let's everybody pray for those brave martyrs,who fiercely fought to present a new democratic & peaceful libya for the current and future generation. they'll never come back to enjoy the freedom and to take a sigh of relief in free Libya,which gained by their bloods. all the Libyans have one supreme duty to help for executing of the martyrs dream.
