The UK remains seriously concerned by the human rights situation in Libya. Libya is a human rights Country of Concern for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and features in the FCO’s annual Human Rights and Democracy report. The UK worked closely with international partners to support the efforts of the UN Special Representative of the Secretary General, Bernardino Leon, to bring an end to the violence through an inclusive political dialogue between the parties. In April 2014 the Prime Minister, my right hon. Friend the Member for Witney (Mr Cameron), offered diplomatic support for UN efforts by appointing Jonathan Powell as a Special Envoy to the Libyan political transition.
