Toby Cadman participates in the debate “Libya peace talks – can they deliver?”

Toby Cadman participated in the televised debate “Libya peace talks – can they deliver?”, organized by AlJazeera.

During the debate Mr. Cadman highlighted the significant concern of the international community about the reported extrajudicial executions of civilians: “There have been hundreds of individuals arrested and tortured in some form of custody, so I think it is a legitimate concern“, particularly, when General Khalifa Haftar, leader of the Libyan National Army, is considered “as one of the negotiating parties” in the peace talks.

The debate, published on 25th July 2017, is available at Inside Story:

Libya peace talks – can they deliver?

French President Emmanuel Macron has brought the two main Libyan rival groups together for face-to-face talks. The meeting in Paris is seen as a step towards reconciliation.

The latest attempt follows six years of conflict and chaos since longtime leader Muammar Gaddafi was overthrown by rebels supported by a French-led NATO air campaign.

Now, Libya has two power centres; the UN-backed government of National Accord headed by Fayez al-Sarraj and the so-called Libyan National Army led by General Khalifa Haftar’s forces, which control a large part of eastern Libya and its oil fields.

How far will Emanuelle Macron succeed when several previous attempts have failed? Why is he mediating?

Presenter: Richelle Carey.

Guests:

Toby Cadman – international criminal and human rights lawyer.

Michel Cousins – Editor-in-chief, Libyan Herald.

Mattia Toaldo – Libyan political affairs specialist, European Council on Foreign Relations.
