Dear Mustafa Abdul Jalil, Chairman of the Libya Transitional Government,
The atrocities running rampant within your country’s detention centers must be stopped. It is inexcusable that detainees face such brutalities as torture, extrajudicial executions, and rape.
You must seize authoritative control over each prison within Libya’s borders in order to extradite the influence of fiefdoms being created by individual commanders. By placing every detention facility under the supervision of judicial authorities, you can end the brutal torture of prisoners by renegade militia members.
I am urging you to protect the human rights of your prisoners. Please take action and take control of the prisons within Libya to stop the inhuman treatment of detainees.
[Your Name Here]
[n.b. I have signed this petition and urge you to do likewise.]
