South Africa has joined the international community in strongly condemning and denouncing reports of slave trade of African migrants in Libya.
“These inhumane acts are incongruent with the ideals of the African Union and relevant African and international instruments, including the African charter on human and peoples' rights,” said the department of International relations and cooperation in a statement on Wednesday.
“South Africa calls for an immediate end to these atrocities and other criminal acts of human trafficking. South Africa welcomes the announcement by the Libyan authorities to investigate and identify all the perpetrators and accomplices of these criminal acts and looks forward to a transparent and credible investigation,” the department added.
