Libya’s missing persons cases stem from the Muammar Gaddafi era, the armed conflict that led to Gaddafi’s fall, the ongoing conflict and disappearances of migrants and refugees. The recent discovery of mass graves in Tarhuna and other locations in Libya increases the need for immediate action to lay the groundwork for effective investigations of missing persons cases and eventual accountability.

Between 2012 and 2014, with support from the U.S. State Department Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor, the United Kingdom and Denmark, ICMP aided the Libyan government by implementing a training program in forensic archaeology and anthropology, crime-scene management and DNA reference sample collection. ICMP also helped the Libyan authorities establish the Libyan Identification Center.

Currently, evidence that could be used in the future to account for missing persons in line with rule-of-law standards, including prosecuting perpetrators, is at risk due to of scarce resources and capacities, which are spread across Libyan institutions.
