Benghazi, 16 September, 2014:
The National Commission for Human Rights has accused members of Libya Dawn of breaking into . . .[restrict]its headquarters in Tripoli’s Fornaj district overnight and stealing files and equipment. In a statement on its its Facebook page it said the gunmen had vandalised the place.
The attack came just hours after the Commission, which not the same as the National Council of Civil Liberties and Human Rights, issued a statement condemning Friday’s demonstrations in the capital’s Martyrs Square attended by the Grand Mufti, Sheikh Sadek Al-Ghariani, at which an effigy of Tripoli House of Representatives member Ali Tikbali was hanged from a gibbet. This was a clear incitement to murder, the Commission stated. It accused the Muslim Brotherhood, which it said had organised the event, along with Ghariani and anyone else who was on the podium, of instigating violence.
The Commission also noted that it had been following the Grand Mufti’s recent declarations which it said included “stirring up violence and incitement to murder, torture, discrimination and violations on human rights”. His statements were pushing Libya towards civil war, it claimed and called on the International Criminal Court to indict him as a war criminal.
The Commission had earlier accused Libya Dawn leaders of war crimes and crimes against humanity for attacks on civilians.
The Commission today said that it would issue a further statement on its Facebook page about the attack on its Fornaj office.
