The British Government does not fund Libyan detention centres. The centres are the responsibility of Libyan authorities. We remain concerned over the conditions reported in these centres, and continue to lobby the Libyan authorities to pursue alternatives to detention and to implement a better functioning migration system that respects human rights.
