The Human Rights Committee of the Libyan National Assembly on Tuesday (February 26th) denounced abductions, killings and the use of "quasi-systematic" torture by militias.
"There is no freedom or dignity in a society where disorder and chaos of militias reign," AFP quoted the rights' body as saying in a statement.
"We stress the need to open an investigation aimed at punishing all those involved (in these violations of human rights), in order to establish a sense of security and justice among the people of Libya," the committee said.
Early this month, Human Rights Watch (HRW) warned that nearly a year and a half after the ouster of Moamer Kadhafi, Libya was "still plagued by serious violations of human rights, including arbitrary arrests, torture and deaths of prisoners".
Most of the detainees are members of the security forces of the deposed Kadhafi regime, former government officials, suspected foreign mercenaries or sub-Saharan migrants, according to HRW.
