Who controls Libya’s migrant detention camps? This documentary exposes the connections between armed militias, people-smugglers and the authorities. It’s a system of exploitation that takes advantage of EU policies. In Libya’s detention camps, thousands of people live in inhumane conditions as they wait for militias, the European Union and the United Nations to decide their fate. Officially, these camps are administered by the Libyan government, but in reality it’s the country’s militias that hold sway. They see refugees as a source of money: Migrants can be kidnapped and tortured, with militias then demanding ransom from relatives at home or abroad.
