Libya — Sudanese detainees in Libyan prisons face poor food and health conditions and receive inhumane treatment from prison authorities, one of the Sudanese inmates told Radio Dabanga.
He added they prefer to die than to live under these conditions.
The prisoner described the treatment they receive by prison authorities as offensive, humiliating and mentally and physically abusive. The inmate added the Sudanese detainees are only allowed one starch meal per day, often causing them malnutrition that lead to diseases such as tuberculosis. He also said that no medical care is allowed and that they are subjected to beatings and solitary confinement.
The detainee stressed that the number of Sudanese prisoners in Libya exceeds one thousand and they are mostly charged of illegally entering the country.
