The chairman of Libya’s parliamentary human-rights committee has resigned and fled to London, saying militias threatened to kill him after he criticized their unchecked power and flagrant violations of the law.
“I have so many concerns about human rights violations in Libya, it is getting to a stage where it is even worse than during Gadhafi’s time,” said Mr. El Amin, who spent 28 years in exile at the time of Gadhafi's rule and was elected to parliament in July.
“The whole country is full of armed men, many of them are hanging onto their guns because they still feel the revolution is not safe,” Hassan El Amin said in a phone interview with The Washington Times on Thursday evening.
