Libya News- anti-corruption critic and activist Hanan al-Barassi shot dead in Libya

(LibyaNN)- Strong condemnation from all parts of the world for the killing of lawyer Hanan al-Barassi. Ms. al-Barassi had been a vocal critic of corruption, abuse of power, and human rights violations.

Her tragic death illustrates the threats faced by Libyan women, children, and men alike as they dare to speak out.

No one can tell the difference between the government and the militias.

It has become an indistinguishable practice that is witnessed by Libyan citizens inside and outside the country.

They travel and dress in an indistinguishable manner and fashion.

Libyans have grown tired of continually waking and retiring in a state of fear and vigilance.

Victims see that the Libyan government and its politicians are not providing any assistance on extortions that lead to kidnappings and torture, and killings from the masked groups who operate in the capitals openly and freely with impunity.

There is no longer a possible distinction between a pure extortion racket or a broad protection racket.

Libyan citizens living inside and outside Libya have called up a public movement to expose corrupt and failed officials to the public.

Since a year ago, supporters have started to organize a movement to oust the corrupt officials and hold them accountable for their past misdeeds.
