The Maltese Government should take a clear position on the situation in Libya.
The Communist Party of Malta states, “that it is shameful that those countries that incited a civil war in Libya to overthrow the Gaddafi regime, are today indifferent with regards the protection of human life in Libya.
“Many people of African nationalities and Libyans are being imprisoned and tortured, according to the international Organisation, ‘Doctors without borders’, working on humanitarian grounds”.
The Party reiterates that “it is ironic how those countries that claim to be the ‘saviours of democracy’ are today signing oil and trade contracts with the Libyan Transitional Council, while these crimes against humanity are being committed. The Party fears that what is happening in Iraq, will happen in Libya with the imperialist policy of ‘divide and rule’.
The Communist Party therefore calls upon the Maltese Government take a clear position on the situation in Libya.
