Written question – Slave trading in Libya – E-007192/2017

Is the Commission aware of the recent reports by CNN investigative journalists about slave trading in Libya? African migrants aiming to reach Europe are being held captive by smugglers and traded as slaves.

This is a direct consequence of EU migration policy and the military intervention by a NATO-led coalition in 2011, which resulted in the collapse of the Libyan state.

How will the Commission take slave trading in Libya and other reported forms of human trafficking of migrants into account in EU migration policy reports?
