' EU contributes to migrants ' exploitation

Amnesty International accuses EU countries of cooperation in mistreating and exploiting migrants in Libya.

According to the human rights organisation European governments support the Libyan Ministry of the Interior and the coast guard at hosting people in prisoners centres.

There they are abused and extorted, according to Amnesty in a post that was published Tuesday in Berlin. The EU Member States are thus complicit in a criminal system. Amnesty demands that those countries immediately quit.

The human rights organisation has accused the Libyan coast guard task to cooperate with traffickers.
