Brussels- The European Commission denied yesterday that it knew of any international reports of violations by Libyan Coast Guard elements, trained by Europeans, against migrants rescued in the Mediterranean. On his part, the EU has indicated that training of coast guard elements involved components and training on respect of human rights and the rights of migrants and refugees, and that this is often done in collaboration with the International Organisation of Migration IOM and the UN High Commission for Refugees UNHCR.
