Libyan Member of Parliament and former president of that body, Abu Bakr Baira, has admitted that any control the Libyan state had over the swarms of Africans invading Europe across the Mediterranean Sea, collapsed when the country’s long-time leader Muammar Gaddafi was toppled and then killed in a western nation co-ordinated attack.
Although Baira did not say it, that attack was premediated as part of a wider range of support given to so-called “democratic” Arab movements in uprisings known as the “Arab Spring”—but these movements were only supported in those Arab states which were hostile to Israel.
Bair also told Sputnik News that invaders detained at sea by EU-supported Libyan coastguards have been able to pay bribes to secure their release, and that he was seriously concerned over the chaos.
“Human trafficking has [already] spread. On the Libyan coast, thousands of people have profited from the trade and the transportation of migrants by sea,” he said,
“In this vein,” Sputnik News continued, “Baira specifically pointed to the temporary detention centers for migrants in Libya, which has been in the grip of chaos since 2011 when the country’s long-time leader Muammar Gaddafi was toppled and then killed.”
According to Baira, “some call the conditions in these centers inhuman, with the situation being complicated by the lack of state control.”
“The economic situation and administrative corruption [in Libya] may be the cause of increasing bribery and nepotism. It is rather easy to buy detained migrants from these temporary centers. This information is not confirmed, but everything is possible in the current chaos,” he concluded.
Baira’s remarks came after The Independent published a report that the UK-supported Libyan coastguard is illegally capitalizing on detaining the refugees, exposing them to brutal violence and releasing them only after payment.
Libya’s eastern regions are governed by the elected parliament backed by the Libyan National Army, headquartered in the city of Tobruk.
The Government of National Accord, formed with the support from the United Nations and Europe and headed by Prime Minister Fayez Sarraj, operates in the Libyan capital of Tripoli.
The rest of the country is either in the hands of warlords or ISIS-affiliates—a situation brought about directly through the elimination of Gaddafi—a situation which Gaddafi himself predicted would happen.
