Libya: Deportation of more than 10,000 migrants

The Libyan authorities announced the deportation of more than 10,000 illegal immigrants last year.

The Minister of the Interior of the Libyan National Unity Government, Imad Trabelsi, said in a statement: “In coordination with the International Organization for Migration, 10,69 illegal immigrants were deported from Libya in 2023,” noting that “by applying several regular measures, this number will double within This year.”

Trabelsi called for cooperation with Libya in combating illegal immigration to “complete the file of returning migrants voluntarily,” stressing that his country “will work to confront random immigration, which is prohibited by Libyan laws.”

He stressed that "Libya will not allow the issue of settling migrants on its territory to be raised under any circumstances, and will not even allow it to be discussed, given that Libya is one of the countries most affected by the influx of migrants and that it will work to respect the rights of migrants."

A few days ago, the Libyan Anti-Illegal Immigration Service announced the deportation of 95 immigrants to both Egypt and Pakistan.

Before that, the International Organization for Migration announced the rescue and return of 442 migrants to Libya during the first days of last February, raising the total to 1,004 irregular migrants since the beginning of 2024.
