LFJL: Constitution must Protect Rights and Freedoms of All

Lawyers for Justice in Libya (LFJL) has said that Libya’s constitution must reflect the needs and aspirations of the whole country, and protect the rights and freedoms of all those in Libya.

Following a full review of the draft recommendations posted by the Constitutional Drafting Assembly (CDA) in December 2014, the organisation called for further engagement and transparency.

LFJL’s director, Elham Saudi, said:

The CDA has opened the door to much-needed feedback and discussion from the public and civil society, and LFJL urges the CDA to honour that commitment in order to find consensus on the constitutional provisions.

"The final draft constitution must reflect the needs and aspirations of the whole country, and protect the rights and freedoms of all those in Libya.

"LFJL’s commentary highlights key areas where the current draft recommendations fall short of these expectations. LFJL is ready to offer its technical assistance to the CDA during the remaining drafting process.”
