Libya Slavery: AFLI invites UN Security Council

The African LeadershipInstitute (AFLI) under the aegis of Archbishop Tutu Fellows (ATF) has invited the United NationsSecurity Council (UNSC) to intervene in the African slavery abuse in Libya, reports ITRealms.

AFLI also called upon the UN related organs to urgently declare the practice of slavery, particularly in Libya- a threat against humanity and to work closely with civil society and member states to arrest the slave trade and create an effective punitive framework to combat against the slave trade globally.

AFLI in a statement available to ITRealms to the African Heads of State and the international private sector, Civil Society and multilateral organisations on its stand against the Libyan slave called on Africa Union (AU) to demonstrate continental leadership in aggregating national voices on ensuring slavery remains a historical footnote.

AFLI equally called upon all African heads of State to take action to hold each other accountable, and to engage with other states beyond the continent who can make a contribution toward eradicating the Slave trade, and to stanch the capital flows and lack of consequence which makes this vile economy thrive.

“We call upon businesses invested in countries such as Libya- which have failed to abide by the unwritten laws of humanity- to divest and support the removal of the Great Stain.

“We call upon the NGO community invested in the fight against human trafficking, forced labor, involuntary migration, social justice and the betterment of the planet to support the removal of the Great Stain.”
