Interviews:

Ibrahim, Voter:
“Thank God, this is the first time we feel real democracy for the election and the polling stations. May God send peace to our country and people”.

Abu Anas, Voter:
“Until now there is no huge crowd but I expect it to increase with time. We wish for good things in this country, some people are hesitant and they do not want to vote due to the general situation. They [the government] did not give the people a time period, it was only a month, so people did not have time to think and decide and ask about the candidates”.

Aisha, Voter:
“May God protect our country and the election go the right way. [May we] vote for the best person, who will be loyal and able to manage this country”.

Mustafa, Voter: “In this election we pray to God to help the new parliament members and to not run the country the same way the former parliament members did. I hope they keep in mind the faith the population has in them. For the current parliament members, their goal must be Libya only”.

Shows the trial of former Gaddafi regime officials taking place in the Libyan Criminal Court, South of Tripoli.
The trial will resume April 27, 2014. Some of the accused officials were not there including two sons of Gaddafi, Seif al Islam and Al Saidi. Al Saddik Al Sour, the head of the investigation department in the attorney general's office, said they were not brought to the court room for security reasons.

Spokesman Sadiq Al-Sour, Head of Investigations at the Attorney-General’s office:

"The hearing today was postponed until 27 April, 2014. The hearings is for the accused persons Saif Al Islam Moamar Al Gaddafi, Abdullah AL Sanousi, Baghdadi al Mahmoudi, Mansour Dhao , Milad Daman, Mohamed al-Zwai, Abdul Hafeez Alzletunai, Hosni El Woheshi , and others. Today they did not bring the suspect Saif Al islam Moamar el Gaddafi from the institution of reform and rehabilitation in Zintan.
Furthermore they did not get the accused people Mansour Dhao and Milad Daman and four other accused people from the institution of reform and rehabilitation in Misurata.
The prosecution has requested the court today to prepare a report by the Office of the Attorney General to explain that because of the current security conditions the judicial police will not be able to bring them into the courtroom since they are being held in prisons in cities that are far away from Tripoli with a distances exceeding hundreds of kilometers. Because the country is experiencing difficult security conditions, to transfer them to the courtroom would put them in danger as well as create fear of them, especially since some of them are accused of dangerous crimes. In Saadi Ghadafi’s case the indictment is about to be completed and will depend on a decision by the Attorney General whether the case is referred in the next few days to the prosecutor."

Tawerghans Face Challenges in IDP Cam...
Tawergha, Libya
By Transterra Editor
09 Apr 2014

In August 11th, 2011, habitants of Tawergha were forced to leave their town by Misrata rebel groups. They were accused of supporting Libyan forces of killed President Muammar Gaddafi during the two months long siege of Misrata.

Tawergha lies south of Misrata between this town and Gaddafi's stronghold town of Sirte. Gaddafi's forces used Tawergha as a base to besiege Misrata during the war, back in 2011.

Many of the around 30,000 inhabitants of Tawergha had to leave the town walking miles and miles through the desert and are now spread across the country. To this day, Tawergha remains a ghost town and it is reportedly being destroyed by militias of Misrata in order to prevent any future return of its inhabitants. The Libyan government is not able to guarantee safe return for the refugees, nor to protect the city.

In Libyan capital, Tripoli, there are up to four IDP camps for Tawerghans. The camp we visited, Tariq al Matar (Airport road) lies on the highway connecting the city and the airport in an old fabric. Access to the camp is through a dirt road of about 200 meters.

Tariq al Matar hosts around 300 families and a total of 1500 people. Most families use to live in a single room of about 3 x 3 meters. Residents say that water is not healthy, they do not have access to hot water and face attacks from militias for the simple fact of being from Tawergha. They say they are abused by Libyans outside the camp and have no protection from authorities.

A majority of city inhabitants are black-skinned, a rare fact in coastal Libya. This is due to the slavery origins of the habitants, which were once working on the palm trees.

9- We are sure that some people (from Tawergha) did bad things. We are not all guilty for that. People from Tawergha have met with people from Misrata to solve the problem. We apologized to the families of Misrata. The meetings were good, but there is no answer from their side. They are waiting for the government to decide, but the government is not strong.
