Default Libya - Foreign Health workers tell of torture

Libya's Supreme Court should consider the torture claims of six foreign health workers on death row for (allegedly) injecting 426 Libyan children with HIV, Human Rights Watch said. The court will review the case today.

Four of the six defendants, five Bulgarian nurses and a Palestinian doctor, told Human Rights Watch in May that they confessed after enduring torture, including beatings, electric shock and sexual assault. Libyan officials denied all of the defendants prompt access to a lawyer, they said. In June, a Tripoli court acquitted 10 Libyan security officials accused of using torture against the defendants.
