KIEV, September 13 (Itar-Tass) — Relatives of the Ukrainians, whom the Libyan rebels took prisoner August 21, have asked for help, the press service of Ukraine’s ombudswoman for human rights Nina Karpacheva said.
It said an appeal for help came from three women living in the southern city of Kherson. Their husbands are among this country’s nationals seized by the forces reporting to the Transitional National Council.
The applicants said in the appeal their relatives and other Ukrainians under arrest now had come to Tripoli in early July to work under a contract with the Dakar oil and gas ./’;company and to fill the positions of builders, engineers and oil workers.
The new Libyan authorities are keeping them locked on the compound of the company’s dormitory but no official charges against or demands to them have been made.
The women who sent the appeal to Karpacheva complain over the absence of action on the part of Ukraine’s governmental agencies and ask her to step into the efforts to resolve the situation dangerous for their husbands.
Karpacheva, on her part, has issued a request to the Foreign Ministry to provide the necessary legal assistance to the captured Ukrainians and to ensure a duly observance of their rights and freedom by the Libyans.
Also, she has asked the Libyan ambassador to Ukraine, Faisal al-Shari for an urgent meeting to discuss the situation.
