9:21 am
your monitor's of accused the gulf states of violating a weapons ban those with headlines are back in half an hour next it's inside story do stay with us. trapped and hungry in libya as opposing armies battle for control of tripoli thousands of african refugees are in detention centers how do they end up there and as food and water runs out here's looking off to them this is inside story.
9:22 am
hello and welcome to the program i'm in wrong come on then to libya illegally from all over africa hoping it's a stepping stone to starting a new life in europe that many a cold on this is dangerous and stressful journey they sent to detention centers in the suburbs of tripoli and other cities but the un recognized government in the capital in charge of the refugees is fighting for its life trying to stop a takeover by warlord holly for. so the refugees are trapped in detention centers where conditions are worsening most of the centers are in the suburbs of tripoli and housing thousands some of the centers became the frontline of the war to seize tripoli at least two migrants were killed last month when have to as forces attacked the southern districts of the capital the un moved hundreds of refugees to safety with government leaders in tripoli focused on controlling the capital some refugees aren't receiving the basics they need to survive out there has been told food and water supplies are running low one center with some refugees going days
9:23 am
without anything to eat. i. let's bring in our panel in geneva we have charlie yaxley he's a spokesman for the un refugee agency and storm all we have. is a libyan political analyst who was kidnapped in two thousand and seventeen by living gang and ended up in a government run detention facility and in brussels we have alberto knight hot he's a policy analyst at the european policy center who researches migration issues welcome to you all i'd like to begin with. in istanbul it must have a very harrowing experience being in one of those government run detention centers can you just give us a sense of what it was like. well it was certainly horrible being kidnapped as midnight and taken by an armed gang
9:24 am
to a facility that also housed some. immigrants. who was outside the government control at that time i suppose. until we managed to escape myself and two other prisoners so the conditions in the camp can you just give us an idea of what they were like then. i never got their. view of the of the camp only of the room we were it was a window. a room with no windows the walls were covered with wood mold and. dirt there were no facilities we the room was our bedroom our dining room and our bathroom as well until we escaped charley actually in geneva you worked for the un refugee agency conditions must have got worse since two thousand and seventeen when the solid because she was
9:25 am
in about government detention facilities where they like metal well even before the recent clashes for some months u.n.h.c.r. were calling for no refugees and migrants rescued at sea to be returned to the senses and part of the reason for that was because when when violence flares up in tripoli what we've seen is the times of tension centers can be left dung guard it with refugees locked inside insufficient provisions of water and in general there's been widespread reports of human rights violations curing inside these detention centers and the situation is particularly bad for those in the unofficial detention centers many of which are run by traffickers and smugglers and what we see there is people then are a very high risk of being being tortured or even finding themselves sold into into
9:26 am
slavery really dire conditions here and nobody should be returned to anywhere in libya at this time can you just give us an idea charlie about the tut the idea of the numbers we're talking about what kind of levels of what kind of numbers of people of. well in recent weeks we've been desperately trying to evacuate people out of detention centers particularly those that are close to the hostilities we've been able to do that to some extent with some degree of success but they've been moved from one detention center to another detention center where the risks there are risks that remain particularly if the hostilities spread right now we have around three thousand refugees and migrants who remain in detention centers inside tripoli and we're really in a race against time where urging the international community to come forward with humanitarian corridors resettlement places whatever it takes to get people out of
9:27 am
this situation. not hot in brussels you've researched migration length can you just tell us what are the driving factors that make people risk winding up in one of these government detention centers in the outskirts of tripoli. absolutely and this is a crucial element that oftentimes it's not analyzed in the discussion because defocus is on so-called pull factors to europe but what the situation in libya now shows is that. then persons who try to reach europe who are willing to put their lives in danger. do not try to reach europe because of the social benefits or their housing policies of the member states of the european union but because they're trying to escape a situation where they are subject to abuse torture where they face were
9:28 am
or even death so in istanbul it's a very lucrative business for the militias and the criminal gangs the incorporate with each other is there a connection between the militias in libya and criminal gangs and all they cooperating with each other. well well that you know from previous experiences around the world you know that whenever there is there is a problem like the refugees there will be militias and criminal gangs that try to make some money out of it and it's no different in libya the government of national accord faces a lot of problems. some of it is because of lack of international support some of it is because of the europeans and their conflicts around immigration policy and some of it is due to internal politics and the support for example of the
9:29 am
immoralities and the egyptians and the saudis of general have to who refuses to recognize the government of national accord and attacked it on every in every which way he can the latest of which is an attack on the capital which makes the national government. unable to fulfill its obligations towards these emigrants and towards its own citizens. charlie in geneva there is a war going on in libya for the capital tripoli that must make your job incredibly difficult to try and the u.n. refugee agency job incredibly difficult trying to people out how what are the real problems you're facing when it comes to the battle. i mean in the last few weeks alone we've had around forty five thousand people inside tripoli become displaced many of them have gone to stay with families outside the city but there are many others who are being forced to take shelter inside the city they're using schools
9:30 am
and other community infrastructure as makeshift displacement sites that these are really wholly unsuitable to provide for the humanitarian needs that people have a me humanitarian organizations doing our best to provide food clean water health care and other relief items but it's extremely challenging we have to make the most of pauses in fighting to rush aids to people as soon as we can at the same time a teams a risking significant dangers in order to help people to get on planes to get them out of the detention senses in order to take part in these evacuation programs some of them we're taking to our gathering and departure facility but that's approaching its maximum capacity and will soon be full so really we're with really a race against time to to get people the assistance they need to really more than anything we need to find a way to get people out as soon as possible. tonight it's
9:31 am
a race against time says charlie yaxley in geneva there is a security issue here for the european union isn't there is a real problem that the european union faces when it comes to dealing with this what could they be doing and what more should they be doing to try and solve this crisis. as it has been mentioned there is the possibility of setting up humanitarian corridors and we have seen in the in the past few days that some european states have established channels for the taint migrants to to rich europe but so fired these measures have been talk the solutions what we need is of course and more structured and more concerted approach to the situation in in libya what we also need is of course for those who
9:32 am
in the future weeks and months will attempt to reach europe by crossing the minute that onion see is there a possibility for intervention by european ships in search and rescue operations at the moment there are no european ships patrolling in limited on in sea which means that should there be an emergency the people who try to reach europe will be risking their lives and at the same time due to the situation political situation into the armed conflict in libya there libyan coast guard is currently also not patrolling limited to danny and sea so absolutely i agree with charlie that we need of course to set up humanitarian corridors and the european union should do more to solve a situation which is currently getting worse and worse as we speak. so
9:33 am
the other question is stumbled there is a geo political element to all of this you mentioned saudi arabia the u.a.e. being key players in backing khalifa haftar and his attack on tripoli and then you have the un backed government in tripoli itself fighting effectively for its life why doesn't the european union the un place pressure on. the u.a.e. to stop their backing for a leaf i have to why do we have all of these players creating a situation that's leading to this refugee crisis. well first of all to go back to your guest's comment about finding a way to stablish humanitarian corridors and so on i mean before the current conflict we were faced with a lack of a unified. european policy on immigration now that smashed by a lack of european policy on how to deal with libya politically you see the
9:34 am
conflict between the italians and the french and the french and the rest of europe and so on of course this lack of policy. has continued since mr mccone initiated the current round of appeasement. to have to her by inviting him to paris and giving him the status of a statesman and so on and now mr mccone is busy with the vests and he wants a simple policy that's offered by his foreign minister mr logorrhea which is support a new dictator and get it over with so we have all these conflicts between the rest of the world in europe and within europe itself and also because of the immoralities and saudis and their preference with the egyptians to oppose the arab spring to oppose democracy in the area they see it as a danger and as
9:35 am
a threat to their systems and that's why we have this conflict now and lack of coordination between all the players in the area. now charlie partly your job your the u.n. refugee agency is job is to deal with the situation as it is on the ground. the root causes of this what's actually driving all of they saw as our guest in istanbul just said to do with the european union to do with america to do with the u.a.e. and saudi arabia and their backing of various different factions in your conversations at the u.n. how much of that is a frustration. well i mean absolutely any any approach to what's happening in libya needs a holistic and comprehensive outlook that not only looks at the outcomes in terms of people attempting to cross the mediterranean and now the very pressing needs to get people out of the tension senses but we also need to look at what's happening
9:36 am
in countries of origin and in countries of transit so that we look at the whole journey before people even get to live via in countries of origin more effort needs to be taken to to address the root causes the creating of violence and war we need to increase mediation efforts to bring warring parties to the table in dialogue to end conflict where exists and that also needs to be more support to countries throughout sub-saharan africa and north africa with their asylum systems and with development support so that they're better able to accommodate asylum seekers and refugees when they arrive in their countries but talking about celerity a point as well it's really important the more is done to tackle the criminal networks and the smuggling networks thrive of people's despair in these situations they need to be held to account and they need to be you know held accountable in
9:37 am
a court of law and their operation ceased if we're going to see a change. absolutely that's bringing in tonight hot in brussels is very interesting point that charlie actually makes in geneva when he talks about there needs to be more done about the criminal gangs now what's the european union's policy towards investigating these gangs in these networks. so currently the. major operation in place by the european union which is over a chanst the fia is directed at dismantling. the smugglers network what has to be said however is that as we have heard smugglers network are oftentimes tightly connected with official authority so at the moment it is really hard to draw a line and i absolutely agreed that smugglers must be tried and they must be held
9:38 am
accountable for their actions but it is also true that the ambiguity when it comes to the european union's policy towards libya is that oftentimes what are funded are no not libyan coast guard out ortiz but muggers themselves so it is really hard to unravel their complex situation and draw a clear line at the moment so in istanbul it is a very complex situation within libya itself but the bottom line seems to be that a lot of people in libya are making a lot of money from these smuggling routes these people trafficking human trafficking routes how difficult then is it to dismantle those networks why isn't the u.n. back government been able to disrupt dismantle those networks. well you dismantle them but. by making sure that the root causes of this from of salt
9:39 am
the root causes are in the countries of origin the guest just a transit point for example and i agree with your guest from brussels that when we talk about dismantling this criminal network i agree with that if you include in it also the regimes that are controlling those countries for example i'll give you an example the reports. are known about a get is in and nature and if it's a city its annual income from from this business is one hundred million a year in a country where the average the average wage is about the average income is about thirty dollars a month per individual this is this is a city where a lot of these migrants stay for a couple of days or a few days before they move on to libya and they move on to libya with the protection of government soldiers i mean. but this but these regimes are
9:40 am
supported and mostly by france france are supporting a dictator that's been in power for over twenty years in chad a dictator has been in power for thirty three years and nature and so also unless you solve the problem i mean the problem of the problem in libya cannot be addressed with the continuing. journeys of refugees year round from these countries of origin so there's an incredible amount of frustration in your voice there is you seem to be very angry about this do you think both the european union the wider world generally is taking the wrong approach to sorting out this migrant problem this refugee problem. they don't wonder if he she they don't they support dictatorships in africa they don't want to do any development in africa and then they complain and they fight among each other how
9:41 am
could these countries that are poor. in terms of resources in terms of governance can solve this this issue libyans libyans are six million people with a lot of oil they don't need the migrant business to prosper but since the government is not doing anything because of european interference in iraq interference the war is going on so these criminal gangs flourish and do other business other than the business that's available in a country that stable with a lot of oil resources tell us in geneva do you think anybody's listening to the kind of opinion our guest in istanbul is saying but we have seen some progress in certain areas there are some seeds of hope for this i mean we've seen a handful of european countries who have come together and although it's on an ad
9:42 am
hoc basis has happened now on a number of occasions where they've come forward to allow boats carrying people leaving libya to disembark and to share a distribution of the people on board we've also seen as other countries who have taken part in the evacuation and resettlement process is. you know this is just a drop in the ocean right now for what's needed and we don't have the luxury of time to wait for these to become more fleshed out we need a. europe wide approach that comes forward is rooted in those principles of compassion and humanity and respect for human rights that the european union was founded on to come forward with a fair and and just an equitable approach to this. other tonight how in brussels europe needs to step up this is what we seem to be hearing from both of our guests in istanbul and in geneva they need to do more but they're not doing more what's
9:43 am
the what's the problem at the moment. that are several problems that probably have been for far too long set aside one of course as as it does me mentioned is we europe the european union has now been the able to develop a coherent foreign policy but when it comes to the specific needs of both migrants who are currently hand in detention centers or do those who transit across libya i think there the problem has been that there was no specific effort or success that addresses the problem of illegal pathways to reach europe currently a person who wants to reach the european union to five an application for asylum doesn't have the possibility of reaching their european union safely or regularly
9:44 am
so there we have a serious fault by the european union that number over and over again has not been able to reach a consensus over legal pass way. and under problem of course is that ever since two thousand and fifteen that is the onset of this so-called migration crisis. many decisions have been taken but the overall goal has been to decrease the number of arrivals rather than finding a solution as has been mentioned rooted in the principles of protection of human rights and. we did call the mind of respecting and fulfilling the obligation of the member states under the geneva convention so there we have a lack of. long term and short. on the part of the
9:45 am
european union. member states have not been able to reach a consensus and really as as at these as it has been mentioned that the current crisis in libya only makes these decisions merge and i would like to thank all of a we are out of time. and. thank you very much and thank you too for take you can see the program again anytime by visiting our website dulce com and for further discussion go to our facebook page that's facebook dot com forward slash a.j. inside story and you can also join the conversation on twitter handle is at age eight inside stories for me in my own cause and the whole team here like a. story
