    Libyan Interior Minister Fathi Bashagha represents a serious threat to the security of Italy. This is what Alessandro Sansoni, director of the magazine CulturaIdentità said during the video conference organized today by Gioventù Nazionale, youth organization of Fratelli d’Italia, on the theme “Libya and the Eastern Mediterranean: migration and conflict” which was attended by more than 90 participants from all over Italy.

    According to Sansoni, the Ministry of the Interior of the Government of National Accord (GNA) led by Bashagha, was closely linked to organizations that run human trafficking networks in the central Mediterranean, as evidenced by several international organizations, including the US Department of State.

    This should be cause for concern within the Italian government, also because the Minister himself has been fingered as being particularly close to Islamist militias. In addition, Bashagha has been accused of the torture of prisoners.

    In particular, he is linked to RADA, an Islamist militia which runs the illegal detention center in Mitiga and which has been trying to impose Sharia law in Tripoli for some time now. RADA has also been accused of human trafficking and the kidnapping of foreign citizens, including Russian researchers Maxim Shugaley and Samer Sweifan. Both have been imprisoned for over a year already.

    Another cause for concern highlighted by the conference participants, was the risk that, among migrants leaving for Italy, Syrian Islamists might have been infiltrating Europe via Italy since these militants have been moving from Turkey to Libya.

    The meeting was also attended by Francesco Di Giuseppe, vice-president of Gioventù Nazionale, and Augusta Montaruli, member of the Italian parliament representing Fratelli d’Italia. They expressed concern about the risk that fundamentalist elements posed in entering Europe via the routes of human traffickers.

    The civil war has been raging in Libya since 2011, when a NATO attack led to the overthrow of the government of Muammar al-Gaddafi and the country fell under the control of militias and opposing factions.

    Currently competing for control of the country are the GNA, based in Tripoli, recognized by the United Nations, and the Libyan National Army (LNA), led by General Khalifa Haftar and close to the Parliament in Tobruk.
