Libya: Undocumented Migrants

Question for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office

UIN HL4962, tabled on 14 December 2021

To ask Her Majesty's Government (1) what assessment they have made of reports that Frontex has worked with the Libyan authorities to secure the return of migrants from outside of Libya’s territorial waters and that this has led to deprivations of human rights for migrants, and (2) what plans they have, if any, to make representations to the EU Commission regarding this action.

We call on all parties to engage with the UN and the humanitarian community so that all migrants and refugees can be evacuated safely in accordance with international human rights law.
