London, 14 December 2020:
Libya and the Geneva Centre for Security Sector Governance signed a Memorandum of Understanding on Friday (11 December) on Security Sector Reform (SSR).
The MoU was signed on behalf of Libya by Fathi Bashagha, Interior Minister of the internationally recognized Libyan government in Tripoli.
Commenting on the MoU in English on his personal Twitter page rather than on his Ministry’s official Twitter or Facebook pages, Bashagha said ‘‘Today, we took yet another step in the path of security reform as we sign an MoU with the DCAF by which we well get expertise and comparative experience enabling us to do extensive reforms to ensure good governance of the security sector based on democratic principles.
This partnership will contribute to building the Ministry of Interior’s capacity in planning and doing security reforms to reach the goal of providing security and justice for Libyans and strengthening peace and stability for Libyan society and the region as a whole.’’
The DCAF reported on Saturday ‘‘Yesterday, the DCAF signed a MoU with the Libyan Interior Ministry setting the frame for cooperation on strategic planning for SSR in Libya. We are looking forward to working together towards an accountable, transparent and democratic security sector for all Libyans.’’
