The Libyan Presidential Council discussed the file of mass graves, the issues of missing persons in the city of Tarhuna, and overcoming the difficulties in front of the identification teams, calling for expediting the disclosure of the fate of the missing, and taking legal measures against the perpetrators.

This came during a meeting between Presidential Council deputies, Abdullah Al-Lafi, and Moussa Al-Koni, and members of the Association of Tarhuna Victims, in the presence of the city’s parliament member, Abu Bakr Ahmed Saeed, the Minister of Justice for the Government of National Unity, Halima Ibrahim, and Tarhuna's Mayor, Muhammad Al-Kusher.

The members of the association demanded to quickly know the identity of the bodies that were extracted from the mass graves, and the fate of the missing residents of the city, as well as to start procedures to prosecute those accused of committing murders, by issuing local and international arrest warrants against them. 

The two deputies in the Presidential Council considered the crimes committed against the city and its people unprecedented and rise to the level of crimes against humanity, stressing that the council will follow up with the government and the relevant executive authorities on everything related to this file.

They also stressed the importance of coordination between forensic medicine officials and the Authority for the Search and Identification of Missing Persons, to contribute to reaching results that serve this case as soon as possible.
