Spain to Help Battle Human Trafficking in Libya

ABIDJAN – Spain’s Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy said on Thursday said that his county will participate in a plan to fight against human trafficking in Libya.

Rajoy’s remarks came after leaders from the European Union, the United Nations and the African Union agreed Wednesday during the EU-Africa summit in Ivory Coast on an evacuation plan that will allow migrants to be repatriated from Libya.

He said that the most urgent issue was to end the conditions which caused thousands of sub-Saharan immigrants to find themselves stranded in Libya waiting to reach Europe.

Many of those migrants have reportedly fallen into the clutches of human traffickers engaged in the slave trade.

Rajoy said that the AU/EU/UN plan also has medium and long-term objectives, such as fostering economic growth and job opportunities in Africa, eliminating the impetus for young Africans to migrate to Europe.
